China Cargo Airlines has extended its existing component support contract with Lufthansa Technik to include the more than ten Boeing 777-200 freighters coming into service.
Under the 15-year contract, these aircraft will be covered with fully customised and extensive component services.
In 2019, Lufthansa Technik was awarded a component support contract for China Cargo Airlines’ Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft.
Lufthansa Technik will support China Cargo Airlines’ main base in Shanghai with its component service offices in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Hamburg to coordinate customer support and ensure 24/7 worldwide AOG services at different locations.
MRO services will be performed at Lufthansa Technik’s component centres in Hamburg, Germany and Shenzhen, China.
“Our long-term cooperation with Lufthansa Technik has started already in 2000 and we have been great partners on the aviation journey for more than two decades,” said China Cargo Airlines’ vice president Liu Gang. “[With the] fully customised component service scope, we are very confident to continuously rely on Lufthansa Technik in servicing our new 777-200 freighters.”
Lufthansa Technik’s head of commercial aircraft component services Georg Fanta commented: “This long-term agreement enhances Lufthansa Technik’s position as a key MRO provider on the Boeing 777 freighter components. We also bring a breadth of engineering expertise and extensive experience alongside with our global logistics network to provide seamless support to our customers.”
