Lufthansa Technik, the maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) arm of Lufthansa, has announced a five-year component support deal with Air Serbia from January 2024.
The agreement will cover its current Airbus A320ceo fleet and any future acquisitions of the same family.
According to Lufthansa Technik, the arrangement will provide “comprehensive” MRO services, spare part pooling and home base services at Nikola Tesla Airport, in Belgrade.
Jiri Marek, CEO of Air Serbia, explained why the deal was signed now.
Marek said: “We have ambitious goals for our airline, and if we look toward the end of the next decade, our airline could have more than 50 aircraft.
“This requires a reliable partner that supports us with the best possible services – also at our home base in Belgrade. The partnership with Lufthansa Technik will therefore contribute to the operational excellence for Air Serbia.”
