Lufthansa Technik provides Aircraft Transition Services for China Airlines  

China Airlines (CAL) has awarded Lufthansa Technik AG the contract for its Aircraft Transition Services. The Taiwan-based carrier and the world’s leading MRO provider have recently signed a three-year contract covering the transition of 12 Boeing 737-800 and 17 Airbus A330 of China Airlines leased aircraft. 

A total of 29 projects will take place in multiple locations across the Asia-Pacific region. With over 400 aircraft transition projects all over the world, Lufthansa Technik holds years of experience in this field. Lufthansa Technik’s Aircraft Transition Services are designed to make this extensive and complex process easier and more comfortable for the operators. From the initial aircraft assessment and long-term lease asset management all the way to the lease return ‒ the Aircraft Transition Services team supports in every stage of the lease period.  

Jason Tsai, Vice President Engineering Division Operations of China Airlines, said: “The 29 aircraft come from 11 different leasing companies. That’s why we need a reliable partner who knows the business best. From our experience, we know that Lufthansa Technik fullfills both criteria.”  

For China Airlines it’s not the first time collaborating with Lufthansa Technik, the cooperation has been existing for many years. In 2022 both companies extended their Total Component Support (TCS) contract another six years minimum.   

“We would like to thank China Airlines for their trust and look forward to further developing our partnership,” stated Frank Martens, Senior Director Sales and Customer Development, Digital Fleet Services at Lufthansa Technik. “One of the goals of our Aircraft Transition Services is to enable our customers to focus on the most important thing: the successful daily operation of their fleet. We are pleased that China Airlines has chosen us to provide this services for them.”
