MRO agreement with Honeywell for components in CFM's LEAP series engines
Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik have signed an extensive collaboration agreement for the maintenance of Honeywell components installed on CFM International's LEAP series engines which are used in Airbus A320neo Family, Boeing 737 MAX and COMAC C919 aircraft.
Under this agreement, Lufthansa Technik will develop Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) capabilities for the aforementioned Honeywell components. By this, the company will be able to offer improved and OEM-certified aftermarket services, with increased component reliability and reduced operator life-cycle costs.
"We are excited to further extend our relationship with Honeywell," said Dr. Georg Fanta, Vice President of Aircraft Component Services at Lufthansa Technik. "Our customers will benefit greatly from this new agreement as we combine Lufthansa Technik's maintenance, repair, overhaul and engineering capabilities with the design knowledge of Honeywell. Just like with the CFM56 engines, Lufthansa Technik will be able to repair Honeywell LEAP line replaceable units in-house and offer world-class flight-hour based component support services, including tailored asset management solutions."
Lufthansa Technik and Honeywell have enjoyed a long standing, collaborative relationship including Lufthansa Technik as the licensed component repair center and exclusive global asset provider for all Honeywell products on Airbus A350 aircraft. Moreover, Lufthansa Technik brings a new level of predictive health management expertise to airlines, with the inclusion of Honeywell Forge analytics on Lufthansa Technik's AVIATAR platform.
