Spairliners started providing full component support today for Lufthansa's Airbus A380s--four days before the airline's first passenger flight.
While this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, Spairliners
, a joint venture between Air France Industries
and Lufthansa Technik
, will be managing spare parts inventory, providing spares logistics, and repairing and overhauling components for Lufthansa's 15 ordered A380s
Lufthansa Technik says this is the first time the German carrier has subcontracted its aircraft component support.
So far, Spairliners is supporting 10 A380s, and it has 37 more on contract.
