German MRO provider Lufthansa Technik has signed a contract with Air India for the comprehensive components services for the airline’s Boeing 777 fleet.

The Total Component Support contract covers the Gurugram-based airline’s 27 777 aircraft. 

S.K. Dash, chief technical officer at Air India, said: “The partnership with the well-experienced Lufthansa Technik for the component support of our entire Boeing 777 fleet of 27 aircraft is a significant milestone in our collaborative journey. 

“Lufthansa Technik demonstrated professional ad-hoc support for our Boeing 777 fleet and we are delighted to strengthen this relationship further by way of this long-term agreement,” he explained. 

The deal in India is a continuation of Lufhansa’s maintenance arm’s global operations, following contracts in Europe with Air Serbia and the Americas with Frontier

It is the third contract for the German firm in India, after an Air India Express deal and a Vistara agreement for Boeing 787 components in 2020.
