StandardAero wins Lufthansa CityLine CF34-8C support contract

Lufthansa CityLine has selected StandardAero to provide support for the GE Aviation CF34-8C turbofan engines powering its fleet of MHI RJ Aviation (formerly Bombardier) CRJ900 regional jets.

Under the exclusive seven-year agreement, StandardAero will support the German airline with a range of CF34-8C services from its overhaul facility in Winnipeg, Canada.

StandardAero said it would also qualify its European field service team based in Rijen, the Netherlands to support the CF34, “thereby assuring Lufthansa CityLine of responsive local airside assistance”.

Lufthansa CityLine’s vice president technical fleet management Michael Lariviere said: “Reliable operations are at the centre of our business, and for that we need reliable partners. StandardAero has proven to be a professional and committed service provider to us in the past. That’s why we absolutely look forward to working with the great team of StandardAero in the coming years even closer than before.”

StandardAero’s director of business development – airlines and fleets Kevin Cusack commented: “We are truly honoured to have Lufthansa CityLine entrust us with the support of its CF34-8C engine fleet, and look forward to meeting and exceeding their expectations over the coming years.

“This exclusive agreement is the culmination of many years of cooperation between StandardAero and Lufthansa CityLine, including support previously undertaken for the airline’s auxiliary power units, and we are delighted to expand our relationship with such a well-known operator.”
