Asiana Airlines said on April 12 that it has signed a 10-year deal with Lufthansa Technik on component maintenance for its Boeing 777 fleet.
The deal covers nine aircraft in Asiana’s Boeing 777-200ER fleet and component repairs will take place at Lufthansa Technik’s workshops in Hamburg.
Kim E-Bae, executive vice president handling corporate support at Asiana Airlines, said the carrier has selected Lufthansa Technik as the strategic partner for its 777 components maintenance.
“We are convinced about Lufthansa Technik’s customer-aimed support, which already proved its value throughout our long-term partnership,” Kim said in comments posted on the website of Lufthansa Technik.
Gerald Steinhoff, Vice President Corporate Sales Asia Pacific at Lufthansa Technik, said this new agreement “further strengthens the long-standing, trustful cooperation between Asiana Airlines and us,” according to Lufthansa Technik.
Asiana Airlines and Lufthansa Technik, a wholly owned subsidiary of Germany’s Lufthansa, have been working together for more than 25 years.
