Lufthansa Technik has been selected by an undisclosed customer to perform comprehensive cabin engineering services as well as initial parts provisioning for the entry into service of a BBJ 787-8.
The engineering services consist of service bulletin and airworthiness directive monitoring, development and tracking of required maintenance planning data, as well as parts and components adapted to the specific customer needs. The part provisioning services comprise the overall services for the aircraft and the cabin supporting the entry into service.
“We are permanently extending our technical support for this aircraft type,” said Walter Heerdt, senior vice president of VIP and special-mission aircraft services at Lufthansa Technik. “The engineering and initial parts provisioning services mark another milestone in further strengthening our expertise on the 787.”
The technical support agreement is a follow-on contract to a comprehensive cabin modification of this aircraft. So far the company supports more than 180 Boeing 787 for airline operators. The product portfolio comprises MRO services for commercial and VIP aircraft of this type, including engineering, spare part supply, modifications and completions.
