Lufthansa Technik, a leading provider of technical services for commercial, VIP and Executive Jets, has recently signed a two-year contract with an undisclosed Asian VIP customer to provide all-round technical support for two ACJ319 aircraft.
The Total Technical Support TTS® contract extends from line maintenance to full provisioning with components and materials, including logistics plus Maintenance Management and CAMO Services.
Lufthansa Technik will provide maintenance support out of its worldwide network. Services for components, wheels, brakes and other materials will be established and handled via the Lufthansa Technik facilities in Hamburg and Frankfurt.
Additionally, Lufthansa Technik will provide technical support on board of the aircraft by accompanying maintenance staff.
"We are very delighted about the signing of this latest technical support contract. It confirms our strategy not just to be a high-quality completion center but to offer our VIP-customers a complete service package, covering the whole life-cycle of their aircraft. We see a growing market for technical support of VIP aircraft also in Asia," said Walter Heerdt, Senior Vice President Marketing & Sales at Lufthansa Technik."Our longstanding experience in technical services for commercial airlines is clearly the base to offer top-support for our VIP customers, too."
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and about 26,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading manufacturer-independent providers of services for the aviation industry. Lufthansa Technik is licensed internationally as a repair, production and development enterprise. The Group's portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of services in the areas of maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification and conversion, engines and components.
CFM will supply OEM replacement parts, component repairs, and repair technology to Lufthansa Technik.
The project will start in November 2013 after the hand-over from the painting facility at Lufthansa Technik's US-subsidiary BizJet International in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Lufthansa Technik has signed contracts or is in final talks about the completion of a considerable number of widebody and more than ten narrowbody aircraft.
