Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has signed a Total Technical Support TTS contract (including Total Material Operations TMO) with Nok Air and will provide all-round support for the Thai airline’s new Boeing 737NG fleet from November onwards.
Technical fleet management on site and maintenance management services (MMS) were described by LHT as being “just as much part of the extensive service spectrum as engine overhauls and the provision of components, consumables and expendables. In addition, the agreement comprises landing gear and APU overhauls as well as repairs on large composite structures such as radomes and thrust reversers”.
With Nok Air’s fleet rollover due to start at the beginning of November, preparations for the start of operations are already under way. The local infrastructure at the airline’s hub at Bangkok Don Mueang Airport (DMK) is currently being built up. Lufthansa Technik Logistik (LTL) is providing support for the construction of the material warehouse at DMK. Furthermore, a fleet management team and a maintenance station are being set up to ensure that the fleet gets off to a good start.
To provide optimal support for the 737NG aircraft over the next eight years, Lufthansa Technik will not only make use of its workshops in Germany, but also the extensive resources of the entire Lufthansa Technik Group.
