Lufthansa and EPCOR have entered into an exclusive agreement to provide availability to the German airline’s first Boeing 787-9 aircraft of the 787 fleet with APS5000 Auxiliary Power Units (APUs).
The airline took delivery of its first Dreamliner in August 2022, with four more to follow in the coming weeks. In total, Lufthansa has ordered more than 30 Dreamliner’s to strengthen its wide-body fleet. As a subsidiary of AFI KLM E&M and as a centre of excellence specialized in APU maintenance, EPCOR will handle all warranty repairs on the APS5000s concerned including an availability solution.
EPCOR is now one of only three workshops in the world licensed to overhaul and repair this APU. Approximately 40% of the 787 APUs worldwide are supported at EPCOR’s shop at Amsterdam International Airport in Schiphol.
