Air Nostrum and Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey (LTAA) have signed an agreement for the latter to maintain, repair and overhaul the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127 turboprop engines and General Electric CF34-8C5 turbofan engines in the airline’s fleet.
LTAA will also provide on-site services at Air Nostrum’s home base in Valencia, Spain.
“Signing this contract underlines our year-long confidence in LTAA’s tailored solutions and MRO experience. A perfect example is the on-site compressor shroud replacement programme on our CF34-8C engines which is extremely cost effective and which is preventing us from unscheduled engine shop visits,” explained Miguel Angel Falcón, director general of Air Nostrum.
“Entering into this agreement with Air Nostrum, one of the most important regional airlines in Europe, further establishes LTAA as a leading MRO service provider within Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” says Mark Johnson, CEO of Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey. “We will be very pleased to justify Air Nostrum’s confidence in us by continuing to provide outstanding reliability and service.”
