Lufthansa Technik will provide MRO support for Air India’s Boeing 777-200/300 landing gears over the next four years. The contract covers 15 shipsets with the maintenance and overhaul work being performed by Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK (LTLGS) in the United Kingdom.
Zang Thio, vice president corporate sales South East Asia and Australia at Lufthansa Technik, commented: “We are very proud to extend our customer base in India with the country’s flagship carrier.”
The first Boeing 777-200/300 landing gear delivery to Air India also marks an important milestone for LTLGS – the 50th Boeing 777-200/300 landing gear overhaul by LTLGS since 2013. According to Lufhansa Technik this ‘amounts to a market share of approximately 70 percent in the currently anticipated global market.’
Sandra Eckstein, managing director of Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK, commented: “We are delighted to add Air India to our existing customer base, which includes major Boeing 777-200/300 operators from Europe, the Middle East and Asia”.
