Already in 2019 China Cargo Airlines has entrusted Lufthansa Technik AG with the component support for their Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft. As the new Boeing 777 freighters come into service, Lufthansa Technik now has extended its component support so that China Cargo Airlines can continuously provide smooth air cargo services to more than 200 destinations around the world.
Under the 15-year contract, more than 10 Boeing 777-200 freighters are covered with fully customised and extensive component services. Lufthansa Technik will support China Cargo Airlines’s main base in Shanghai with its component service offices in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Hamburg to coordinate customer support and ensure 24/7 worldwide AOG services at different locations which are vital for flight operations. Maintenance, repair and overhaul services will be performed at Lufthansa Technik’s component centers in Hamburg, Germany and Shenzhen, China.
During a signing ceremony in Shanghai, Liu Gang, Vice President of China Cargo Airlines, highly commended Lufthansa Technik’s service performance level for their existing 747-400F fleet from past few years: “Our long-term cooperation with Lufthansa Technik has started already in 2000 and we have been great partners on the aviation journey for more than two decades. By given fully customised component service scope, we are very confident to continuously rely on Lufthansa Technik in servicing our new 777-200 freighters.”
“This long-term agreement enhances Lufthansa Technik’s position as a key MRO provider on the Boeing 777 freighter components,” said Georg Fanta, Head of Commercial Aircraft Component Services, Lufthansa Technik. “We also bring a breadth of engineering expertise and extensive experience alongside with our global logistics network to provide seamless support to our customers.”
