Peach Aviation and Lufthansa Technik (LHT) have signed a multi-year component supply contract for the 16 Airbus A320 it will begin to receive in November.
The first three Airbus A320s will be delivered in Toulouse next month. To ensure smooth entry, Lufthansa Technik has already begun to monitor the aircraft assembly within the frame of the aircraft production inspection program (APIP). The components will be supplied to the airline’s home base at Kansai International Airport by Lufthansa Technik’s facilities in Hamburg and Frankfurt.
“Peach chose Lufthansa Technik as a partner on the basis of our confidence in its ability to provide reliable support for our fleet. We know that LHT has the necessary experience and knowledge to operate in the demanding Japanese environment, with its strict regulations. We believe that the combination of quality, reliability and cost will deliver the best value for Peach in the years to come," remarked Takeaki Mori, operations director for Peach.
In addition to the APIP, the deal includes integrating material support for the customer into Lufthansa Technik’s logistics. The airline works with the TRAX MRO IT system software. With an appropriate modification, Peach Aviation employees can now enter their material requisitions directly.
