The Norwegian Air Shuttle Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lufthansa Technik to extend an existing Total Engine Support (TESR) contract.
The agreement covers all-inclusive services for the CFM56-7B engines powering the airline’s current fleet of 115 Boeing 737-800 aircraft and under the MoU, Lufthansa Technik will cover all planned and unplanned shop visits for the next five years at its CFM56 engine shop in Hamburg, Germany.
The extended agreement will also cover engine lease management. Lufthansa Technik will secure the leasing of spare engines for Norwegian to ensure availability during peak overhaul periods.
The contract will also include the regular employment of Lufthansa Technik’s proprietary CycleanR Engine Wash and on-site services such as the use of the portable device aerotracer.
Lufthansa Technik has been maintaining Norwegian’s CFM56-7B engines since the fleet introduction of the B737-800 in 2008. In addition to the current engine agreement, it also supports the B737-800 fleet of the Norwegian Group with other services including extensive airframe maintenance.
