China Cargo Airlines has entrusted Lufthansa Technik with the component support for three Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft. The five-year Total Component Support (TCS®) agreement is the first major collaboration between the two companies – and the first TCS® contract with a direct service provision to a Chinese customer.
Lufthansa Technik’s Total Component Support offers operators optimal component availability without the task of setting up and maintaining their own spare parts inventories. China Cargo Airlines will benefit from a unique pooling concept which guarantees 100%-reliable delivery at a pre-determined service level and resulting lower operating costs, especially through economies of scale. The agreement with the all-cargo airline comprises 427 part numbers.
