CFM International and Lufthansa Technik (LT) have sealed an agreement that will see the latter provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for CFM’s LEAP-1A engines.
The completed CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA) means LT becomes part of the MRO network for the engines. “It is a real pleasure to welcome a provider of the calibre of Lufthansa Technik to the LEAP MRO network,” said Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International. “We have a very long, very successful relationship with them through the CFM56 product line.” The new agreement, he added, would that their relationship “to a whole new level.”
“The LEAP engine represents the next generation of aircraft engines with state-of-the-art technology,” said Bernhard Krüger-Sprengel, vice-president, engine services at LT.
CFM International is the 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines.
