Royal Jordanian again entrusts Lufthansa Technik with component maintenance

Five-year Total Component Support (TCS) for the airline´s entire Airbus A320 family fleet

Royal Jordanian, the national airline of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed an agreement regarding comprehensive component maintenance for the airline´s entire Airbus A320 family fleet. Over a period of five years, Lufthansa Technik will provide its Total Component Support (TCS) including spares support, parts pooling and homebase support services for a total of five A319s, six A320s and two A321s.

In line with TCS, Lufthansa Technik's experts will take care of all aspects of supplying Royal Jordanian's fleet with components, from initial provisioning studies and home base allocation at Amman's Queen Alia International Airport to repair and overhaul, troubleshooting, documentation and engineering services. This comprehensive spectrum of services will ensure Royal Jordanian highest aircraft availability while avoiding a big capital investment for their own dedicated spare-parts inventory. As a customized service package, TCS is exactly tailored to the airline's specific requirements.

Royal Jordanian Vice Chairman and CEO Samer Majali said: "Lufthansa Technik and Royal Jordanian have been partners over the past few years, and we are pleased to build on this partnership for the coming five years. We trust that their efficient and timely component support will serve our keenness to maintain our fleet at its best performance."

„Royal Jordanian is one of our longterm partners in the Middle East, the prouder I am to extend this outstanding cooperation well into the future," said Kai-Stefan Röpke, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East and Africa at Lufthansa Technik. "We are committed to ensuring our valued customer best-in-class aircraft availability and will moreover combine it with the outstanding service levels our component services are known for."

The new TCS contract builds on a previous agreement in which Lufthansa Technik provided component MRO for Royal Jordanian since 2017. In 2019, the two partners also extended their collaboration to components of the CFM56 turbofan engine. Royal Jordanian's A320 family fleet also relies on Lufthansa Technik for overhauls of its landing gears.
