Posted 15 March 2014 · Add Comment

The Namibian flag-carrier Air Namibia and Lufthansa Technik have extended its total technical support contract valid through 2018. It has been running since the airline launched in 2006.

As part of its comprehensive supply of the airline's current long-haul fleet of two factory new Airbus A330s, Lufthansa Technik
has been contracted to provide services for the components, engineering and line maintenance. In addition, Lufthansa Technik will take over the complex support of the customer's lease returns for the former A340 fleet.

"The integrated technical support we receive from Lufthansa Technik allows us to focus optimally on flight operations," said Rene
Gsponer, Air Namibia's chief operating officer.
