Lufthansa Technik is to provide Aircraft Transition Services for China Airlines.
The three-year contract is to cover the transition of 12 Boeing 737-800 and 17 Airbus A330 of China Airlines leased aircraft.
A total of 29 projects will take place in multiple locations across the Asia-Pacific region.
With over 400 aircraft transition projects all over the world, Lufthansa Technik holds years of experience in this field.
Its Aircraft Transition Services are designed to make this extensive and complex process easier and more comfortable for operators.
The MRO provider says its Aircraft Transition Services team supports in every stage of the lease period – from the initial aircraft assessment and long-term lease asset management, all the way to the lease return.
Jason Tsai, vice president of the engineering division operations of China Airlines, said: “The 29 aircraft come from 11 different leasing companies. That’s why we need a reliable partner who knows the business best. From our experience, we know that Lufthansa Technik fulfils both criteria.”
China Airlines has collaborated with Lufthansa Technik for many years. In 2022, both companies extended their Total Component Support (TCS) contract another six years minimum.
Frank Martens, senior director sales and customer development, digital fleet services at Lufthansa Technik, said: “We would like to thank China Airlines for their trust and look forward to further developing our partnership.
“One of the goals of our Aircraft Transition Services is to enable our customers to focus on the most important thing: the successful daily operation of their fleet. We are pleased that China Airlines has chosen us to provide this services for them.”
The Taiwan-based carrier China Airlines was established in 1959, has more than 10,000 employees worldwide, and operates a fleet of 107 aircraft.
