Lufthansa Technik Expands Footprint in South America

Lufthansa Technik is expanding its footprint in South America.  “We are proud that we can now also welcome the Chilean JetSMART among our customers,” says Georgios Ouzounidis, vice
president corporate sales Americas at Lufthansa Technik. “It is an honor that we are now working with another major airline of the Indigo Partners Group.”

The contract with JetSMART runs for five years and includes extensive CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization) support and Aircraft Engineering Services, such as maintenance program support or modification and component management. The collaboration has already begun and will initially cover 25 Airbus A320 family aircraft. With the planned growth of the airline, the fleet is expected to increase rapidly until 2027. To ensure the best possible service, Lufthansa Technik has set up onsite support for the customer in Santiago de 

“JetSMART appreciates the knowledge Lufthansa Technik has in regard to aircraft engineering services,” says Estuardo Ortiz, CEO at JetSMART. “We were looking not only for a supplier. We were looking for a partner that can support our growth, is flexible enough to adapt to our AOC setup and is providing safe and stable processes.”

After the first weeks of cooperation, both sides are very satisfied. “Engineering and CAMO are mission-critical areas,” says Christian Dieckert, head of engineering services at Lufthansa Technik. “We are 
therefore very pleased with the trust JetSMART has placed in us and, of course, with the positive feedback we are receiving from our new partners.”
