Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP) has welcomed Cebu Pacific’s first A330neo aircraft for its inaugural base maintenance activity.
Arriving on November 17, it marks the beginning of a series of maintenance events to support the airline’s growing A330neo fleet.
The collaboration between the two companies began in 2011 with line maintenance for Cebu Pacific’s narrowbody fleet.
This has since expanded to include base maintenance for both A320 and A330 fleets.
In line with Cebu Pacific’s ongoing fleet modernisation efforts, the airline currently operates five A330neo aircraft and will soon receive 11 more.
Shevantha Weerasekera, Cebu Pacific’s vice president engineering and fleet management, said: “This collaboration with Lufthansa Technik Philippines is a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of safety and quality in our operations.
“We are excited about the partnership and look forward to achieving new heights together.”
Rainer Janke, vice president marketing and sales Asia Pacific at LTP, said: “We are extremely pleased to embark on this special partnership with Cebu Pacific.
“In addition to achieving this significant milestone, we recently celebrated CEB’s 50th aircraft base maintenance layover at our facility.
“They have consistently pushed the boundaries as one of the leading low-cost carriers in the region, and LTP is honoured to have been chosen as their partner in this endeavour.”
LTP is the first in its global network to provide comprehensive A330neo aircraft maintenance services.
