Travel Service a.s. (TVS), the largest airline in the Czech Republic, and Lufthansa Technik AG signed an enlargement of the already long lasting cooperation in respect to engine services which now comprises the whole Boeing 737NG fleet. The German company will look exclusively after the current 56 CFM56-7B engines of TVS' entire rapidly growing 737NG fleet. The new contract, which extends until the end of 2020, covers maintenance, repair and overhaul, logistics and on-site support by Lufthansa Technik's Airline Support Team.
Since 1997 TVS relies on Lufthansa Technik's competence on engine repair and overhaul at its facilities in Hamburg and Frankfurt. "The Lufthansa Technik Group is a competent and reliable partner delivering customized engine services to our needs at competitive prices," said Roman Vik, General Director, Travel Service.
