Lufthansa Technik has signed a multi-year agreement to provide Total Component Support (TCS) for Air India’s entire Boeing 777 fleet.

This is the first contract signed between the two parties since Air India’s takeover by Tata Group, and the agreement covers services for a total of 27 aircraft.

Starting in July 2024, Air India will receive Lufthansa Technik’s proven TCS which includes the MRO of aircraft components and provides Air India access to Lufthansa Technik’s global component pool and logistics services.

The partnership will enable Air India to maximise efficiency in its technical operations and ensure the best possible availability of the spare parts it needs.

“Lufthansa Technik demonstrated professional ad-hoc support for our Boeing 777 fleet and we are delighted to strengthen this relationship further by way of this long-term agreement.”

Dennis Kohr, senior vice president of corporate sales for Asia Pacific at Lufthansa Technik, said: “We would like to thank Air India for their trust and for awarding Lufthansa Technik to provide comprehensive Total Component Support.

“As the airline continues on its growth path in the next years, we look forward to supporting them with our services and eagerly anticipate expanding our new partnership further.”
