Austrian Airlines has contracted Lufthansa Technik for eight years of overhaul of its CFM56-5B A320 engines – covering 21 aircraft in total. This new agreement expands the long-standing cooperation of Austrian, a member of the Lufthansa Group since 2009, and Lufthansa Technik.
Lufthansa Technik offers engine services ranging from maintenance, repair and overhaul to engineering services, and logistics, including spare engine support. The company has been providing support for Austrian Airlines’ CFM56-7B and PW4000 engines powering the carrier’s Boeing 737 and 767 fleets. These aircraft, as well as the airline’s Boeing 777 and Airbus A320 family jets, are also supported with component and landing gear services.
Austrian itself is an exclusive provider of component services to Lufthansa Technik for selected component groups.
