MoU with Norwegian for comprehensive CFM56-7B engine services
Total Engine Support (TES®) for Boeing 737-800 fleet
The Norwegian Air Shuttle Group and Lufthansa Technik have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to early extend an existing Total Engine Support (TES®) contract with Lufthansa Technik. The agreement covers all-inclusive services for the CFM56-7B engines powering the airline's current fleet of 115 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
According to the MoU, Lufthansa Technik will cover all planned and unplanned shop visits for the next five years at its highly dedicated CFM56 engine shop in Hamburg, Germany. The extended agreement will also cover a far-reaching engine lease management. Lufthansa Technik will secure the leasing of spare engines for Norwegian to ensure the availability during peak overhaul periods. The contract will also include the regular employment of Lufthansa Technik's proprietary Cyclean® Engine Wash and on-site services such as the use of the portable device aerotracer.
Lufthansa Technik has been maintaining Norwegian's CFM56-7B engines since the fleet introduction of the Boeing 737-800 in 2008. In addition to the current engine agreement, Lufthansa Technik also supports the 737-800 fleet of the Norwegian Group with a range of other services, including extensive airframe maintenance.
