SR Technics wins Eurowings engine MRO contract

SR Technics has signed an engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) agreement with Lufthansa Group’s low-fare airline, Eurowings.

The two-year agreement was signed at the end of June and covers part of the airline’s CFM56-5B fleet.

A co-operation with Eurowings began in January of this year and in order to meet the needs of the carrier’s large engine shop visit demands, SR Technics provided single engine shop visit offers to customise its services. The MRO said this, combined with slots that met the carrier’s planning needs and continuous support were key to winning the two-year contract.

All work under the new agreement will be completed at SR Technics Zurich Airport facility and covers engine MRO solutions, including airfoils repairs in SR Technics’ Cork, Ireland facility and full parts and material management for more than 30 engines.

“We are delighted to have won Eurowings as a customer,” says Michael Sattler, chief commercial officer at SR Technics. “This clearly reflects on our excellent relationship with Eurowings, and our ability to adapt to challenging scheduling requirements and offer flexible solutions.”

“Optimal technical support for our aircraft is an essential prerequisite for the success of Eurowings,” said Michael Knitter, chief operations officer of Eurowings. He added that the airline was proud to be able to rely on SR Technics.
