Lufthansa Technik (LHT) and Virgin America have announced an extension until 2021 of their existing contract, under which LHT will continue to provide its Total Material Operations TMO services for Virgin America.
The new agreement also includes the order for ten Airbus A320s which are to be delivered between July 2015 and June 2016.
Since Virgin America began operations in August 2007, Lufthansa Technik has supplied all components, consumables and expendables for the airline's fleet of 53 Airbus A320 family aircraft, and also provides logistics and warehousing.
"Lufthansa Technik has been a key partner for our maintenance operations since our launch in 2007," remarked Mark Bianchi, SVP technical operations at Virgin America. "The partnership through to 2021 will help support our airline's continued growth into the future."
