Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey and Eurowings have signed an exclusive agreement for repair and overhaul services on at least 30 GE CF34-8C engines for all 15 aircraft of the airline’s Bombardier CRJ900 fleet over the next eight years, with further CRJ900s to be phased-in also included in the contract.
“The collaboration with Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey in the area of engine maintenance is part of a concerted effort on our part to achieve the maximum possible reliability in our flying operations,” commented Peter Kranich, joint CEO of Eurowings.
Mark Johnson, CEO of Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey, noted, “We appreciate the trust that Eurowings has placed in us by signing this MRO contract. Eurowings and Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey have been working together from time to time on other projects for many years, but stepping into a long term relationship with a corresponding agreement makes it more gratifying that Eurowings is now entrusting us with the maintenance of its new generation of engines.”
