Lufthansa Technik provides support Eurowings long-haul fleet

Aircraft technology servicer provider and SunExpress ink total support contract for up to seven Airbus A330-200

Lufthansa Technik AG is to provide comprehensive technical support for the new Eurowings long-haul fleet. An agreement was reached with SunExpress Germany, which operates intercontinental flights from Germany for the Lufthansa Group under the Eurowings brand. Lufthansa Technik will handle component supply, aircraft maintenance, engineering services and the supply of consumables for up to seven Airbus A330-200 wide body aircraft as part of the Total Technical Support (TTS).

Important contribution to new strategy

Robert Gaag, Senior Vice President Corporate Sales EUMEA at Lufthansa Technik, said: “We are delighted to extend the long-standing intensive and trusted cooperation between SunExpress Germany and Lufthansa Technik. This contract also allows us to make a valuable contribution to the new low-cost strategy of the Lufthansa Group – based on the familiar high quality and safety standards.”

Extensive engineering work

The TTS involves overhauling components, transport services, spare part pooling and material leasing services at Eurowing’s home base at Cologne-Bonn airport. Based on extensive Aircraft Engineering Services (AES), Lufthansa Technik plans, manages and monitors the maintenance of the Eurowings A330 fleet and also maintains the machines in Cologne. This includes comprehensive supply of consumables and expendables (C&E) for the aircraft.

Proven co-operation

The new agreement is yet another step in the long, trusted co-operation with SunExpress at its base in Antalya, Turkey and in Frankfurt. Lufthansa Technik has, for instance, already provided substantial technical support for other sub-fleets and performed engine overhauls and aircraft painting for the German-Turkish airline. Lufthansa Technik also upgraded the cabins for the Eurowings A330 aircraft in Hamburg base during 2015.
