Posted 3 August 2016 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has contracted Lufthansa Technik to provide comprehensive component support for the airline's future Airbus A350 fleet.

The corresponding Total Component Support TCS agreement will run for a period of ten years and includes 14 aircraft. The contract comprises component maintenance, repair and overhaul as well as access to a pool of spares. 

The contract underscores Lufthansa Technik’s many years of collaboration with Ethiopian Airlines as MRO in a number of different areas. These include an extensive Total Component Support for the carrier’s Boeing 787 fleet as well as material support for Ethiopian Airlines’ Bombardier Q400 regional aircraft fleet. 

Mesfin Tasew, COO Ethiopian Airlines, said: “We are delighted that we were able to extend our long-term Boeing 787 component support with Lufthansa Technik to our newest A350 fleet. 

Our partnership with Lufthansa Technik, which goes back to the 1990s, thus finds a successful continuation into the future. We are convinced that we will receive the same professional and reliable support for our brand-new fleet.”
