Norway-headquartered airline FLYR has awarded Lufthansa Technik a three-year contract to perform base maintenance services for its Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 737-800 aircraft.
Starting in January, Lufthansa Technik Budapest will perform scheduled base checks on the start-up airline’s fleet.
“Lufthansa Technik has supported us with component service and been a reliable partner since the start in 2021,” said FLYR’s technical director Magnus Wannebo. “We are very confident that the good support and cooperation will continue as we start our first heavy maintenance checks.”
The first layover has already begun at Lufthansa Technik Budapest. “FLYR is building a state-of-the-art fleet with the Boeing 737-800s and especially the 737 MAX,” says Lufthansa Technik’s sales manager Tanja Pustolla. “Our team in Budapest prepared early for the first Boeing 737 MAX base maintenance events and, as a competence centre, is now particularly looking forward to FLYR’s fleet.”
