Japan Airlines has extended a long-term component MRO contract with Lufthansa Technik.
The new five-year ‘Total Component Support’ contract covers a multitude of components installed on Japan Airlines’ Boeing 787 fleet of 53 aircraft.
Services will include maintenance, reliability monitoring, reliability enhancement programmes and logistics services.
“We have signed a contract with Lufthansa Technik as a partner that shares and respects the value that Japan Airlines provides to customers – a safe and stable operation,” said the airline’s senior vice president of procurement Kojiro Yamashita. “At the same time, Japan Airlines respects Lufthansa Technik’s commitment to further advanced and high-quality maintenance. Japan Airlines is convinced that this contract will maintain our strong partnership into the future.”
Lufthansa Technik’s senior vice president corporate sales Asia Pacific Thomas Boettger commented: “We are very proud and honoured to extend our services with comprehensive MRO solutions for Japan Airlines’ Boeing 787 fleet based on the past ten years’ accomplishments. We will work very closely together as partners to ensure the highest ongoing safety and reliability. And I believe we will overcome and recover from the difficult times we are now facing and further deepen our collaborative relationship in the future.”
Lufthansa Technik has been providing Total Component Support services for Japan Airlines’ Boeing 787 fleet since 2011 and its Airbus A350 fleet since 2018.
