SAS Scandinavian Airlines has prematurely extended its existing component support contract with Lufthansa Technik and added further services.
Under the new agreement running until December 2026, Lufthansa Technik will provide an integrated material supply Total Component Support, (TCS) for the airline’s entire Boeing and Airbus fleet, including the carrier’s new A350s.
In addition, the company will provide Airframe Related Components (ARC) services for the Boeing and Airbus fleets including LEAP-1A nacelle support.
“We are pleased to further expand our already close partnership with Lufthansa Technik and to include also the new Airbus A350,” says VP SAS technical operations, Marc Weber.
“Based on our excellent and trusted relations, I believe that early extending and enlarging this successful cooperation will allow us to benefit even more from Lufthansa Technik’s technical expertise, competence and capabilities. Especially in view of the extensive renewal of our fleet, we continue to fully trust in this support.”
Vice president of corporate sales Europe, Middle East and Africa of Lufthansa Technik, Robert Gaag, comments: “We are proud and delighted that the leading Scandinavian airline has not only renewed its current contract ahead of schedule, but has also put the material supply of its entire Airbus fleet in our hands.
“This is not only a sign of trust in our services from SAS but also another strong indication of the investment and dedication that Lufthansa Technik has put into delivering market-leading A350 services.”
Under the TCS contract, the company supplies spare parts to the airline’s Scandinavian hubs and is also responsible for base maintenance of the carrier’s A330 and A340 long-haul aircraft, as well as for the maintenance and repair of composites structures.
Here, the contract expansion also covers nacelle support for the SAS fleet’s A320neo aircraft powered by LEAP-1A engines.
Additionally, the agreement entails A350 wheels and brakes services.
