Lufthansa Technik awarded CBSA license for CFM LEAP-1B engines

Lufthansa Technik has become the first independent MRO-provider to sign a CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA) with CFM International (CFM) for LEAP-1B engines.

Under the terms of the agreement, Lufthansa Technik will begin offering MRO services for the LEAP-1B engine ranging from overhaul and parts repair to on-wing support and engineering support.

Lufthansa Technik is the only independent MRO provider worldwide that holds both a CBSA for the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engine.

“We are very proud to further extends our existing, very successful partnership and collaboration with CFM and to add this state-of-the-art engine type to our existing capabilities for the CFM56 family and the LEAP-1A engines,” said Lufthansa Technik’s head of engine services Dietmar Focke.

The LEAP-1B engine powers the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, of which more than 4,700 have been ordered to date. It is expected that up to 15,000 aircraft of this type will be operated worldwide in the future.

CFM International’s president and CEO Gaël Méheust added: “CFM is grateful to have Lufthansa Technik as such an experienced and reputable MRO as part of our LEAP overhaul and repair network.

“This reinforces CFM’s commitment to promote an open, competitive aftermarket landscape that will stimulate innovation, continuous improvement and the lowest cost of ownership over the product life cycle. We are confident that our customers will put their trust in Lufthansa Technik to provide the highest level of service for their LEAP fleets.”
