Kuwait Airways has signed a contract with Lufthansa Technik regarding comprehensive base maintenance layovers for Airbus A330ceo aircraft. The agreement covers a total of four six-year checks for Airbus A330-200s, the first two of which have already been successfully completed at Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP) in Manila.
The first and second of Kuwait Airways’ aircraft arrived at LTP in October and could already be handed back to the customer on-time and on-budget. With the third A330 being serviced in Manila right now, the fourth aircraft will follow directly behind and is set to complete the layover sequence at the beginning of December. Six-year checks – the first in the life of Kuwait Airways’ comparably young A330 fleet – usually comprise comprehensive structural and mechanical inspections.
Over the last few decades, Lufthansa Technik has had various business relationships with Kuwait Airways, with services for both commercial and VIP aircraft. For LTP, however, the recent contract marks the first opportunity to welcome Kuwait Airways aircraft on its premises. In Lufthansa Technik’s global network, LTP is the competence centre for wide-body base maintenance in East Asia, offering overhauls for almost any Airbus aircraft up to the A380 and also for selected Boeing types.
