The Norwegian Air Shuttle Group and Lufthansa Technik have signed a contract extending an existing Total Engine Support (TES) contract.
The agreement covers all-inclusive services for the CFM56-7B engines powering the airline’s current fleet of 115 Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Lufthansa Technik will cover all planned and unplanned shop visits at its CFM56 engine shop in Hamburg, Germany for the next five years.
It also includes a far-reaching engine lease management. The company will secure the leasing of spare engines for Norwegian to ensure availability during peak overhaul periods. The contract also includes the regular use of Lufthansa Technik’s proprietary Cyclean Engine Wash and on-site services such as Airline Support Team AST Engines as well as the use of the portable aerotracer device.
Lufthansa Technik has been maintaining the carrier’s CFM56-7B engines since the fleet introduction of the B737-800 in 2008.
