The Japanese airline StarFlyer and Lufthansa Technik are extending and expanding their cooperation. The technical support provided since the airline began operating in 2006 is now being continued and even broadened through a Total Technical Support TTS contract valid through 2022.
As part of its comprehensive supply of the airline's current fleet of eleven Airbus A320s, Lufthansa Technik has been contracted to provide an expanded range of services for the engines and landing gears. In addition, for the first time Lufthansa Technik will take over the complete execution and integrated support of a customer's lease returns.
"The integrated technical support we receive from Lufthansa Technik allows us to focus optimally on flight operations," emphasized Tatsuji Fukuro, a member of the board of StarFlyer.
"We're very pleased to continue to support the growth of this successful airline so extensively," said Dr. Johannes Bussmann, Chief Executive Human Resources, Engine & VIP Services.
Founded seven years ago with initially three Airbus A320s, StarFlyer offers domestic service to destinations in Japan as well as connections to Korea. Currently the fleet consists of eleven aircraft.
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and associates and over 26,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading providers of technical services for the aviation industry. Its portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of services for commercial aircraft: maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification and conversion, engines and components.
