As the first independent MRO-provider to sign a CFM-branded service agreement (CBSA) for both the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines, Lufthansa Technik (LHT) is now preparing to induct its first LEAP-1B engine in November of this year.
The company already has extensive experience with the LEAP-1A, servicing it for four years and serving a variety of customers – ranging from airlines, to lessors and OEMs as well. Lufthansa Technik offers MRO solutions to the customers’ specific needs varying from Cyclean® engine wash, housekeeping services, mobile engine services and quick turns to performance restoration work scopes. The focus is now on rapid capacity growth.
“Lufthansa Technik’s induction of its first CFM LEAP-1B engine in the coming weeks is a key milestone for our open LEAP MRO Network. As our first CBSA, Lufthansa Technik has gained significant experience with the engine and we are very confident in our capabilities to provide world-class MRO support.” said Gaël Méheust, President & CEO of CFM International.
“We are very grateful for our successful partnership and CFM International’s support in preparing us to offer our services for the LEAP-1B”, said Derrick Siebert, Vice President Commercials Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik.
Lufthansa Technik’s capacity growth supporting the LEAP-1B services maintenance is a significant benefit for the CFM LEAP customer base.
