Vueling Airlines S.A. (Vueling) has awarded Lufthansa Technik a five-year consumable and expendable parts supply contract for the airline’s A320 fleet.
The contract, which includes planning, forecasting, transportation and logistic services, also comprises a consignment stock at Vueling’s base at Barcelona International Airport.
Lufthansa Technik’s head of account and supply chain management Michael Hembera said: “For this contract we have adapted our comprehensive C&E product to meet Vueling’s needs.
“A common IT interface between Lufthansa Technik systems and Vueling’s AMOS digital maintenance management platform allows the two companies to interact directly and quickly, especially in the fields of material planning and forecasting. This will definitely increase the level of technical readiness of the supported aircraft.”
A dedicated account team and on-site customer support manager will be available for direct exchange with Vueling to ensure smooth supply processes.
The Lufthansa Technik experts will also give “extensive” phase-in support to “guarantee an optimal technical support right from the beginning”.
