Landing gear support for Air India's Boeing 777-200/300 fleet
Four-year contract signed with Lufthansa Technik
Air India and Lufthansa Technik have entered into an agreement for the maintenance and repair of the carrier's Boeing 777-200/300 landing gears. The four-year contract covers a total of 15 shipsets. The maintenance and overhaul work will be performed by Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK (LTLGS) located in Hayes, London, in the United Kingdom.
Zang Thio, Vice President Corporate Sales South East Asia and Australia at Lufthansa Technik, commented: "We are very proud to extend our customer base in India with the country's flagship carrier. I am certain that with our extensive level of experience, we will meet our customer's expectations both in terms of quality and reliability."
The first Boeing 777-200/300 landing gear delivery to Air India also marks an important milestone for LTLGS – the 50th Boeing 777-200/300 landing gear overhaul by LTLGS since 2013. This amounts to a market share of approximately 70% in the currently anticipated global market.
Sandra Eckstein, Managing Director of Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK, commented: "All of us here at LTLGS are honored to celebrate this important milestone in our operations and we are delighted to add Air India to our existing customer base, which includes major Boeing 777-200/300 operators from Europe, the Middle East and Asia".
