Air Astana signs engine services contract with Lufthansa Technik


Air Astana, the national carrier of Kazakhstan, has concluded an exclusive long-term repair and overhaul agreement with Lufthansa Technik for the V2500 engines powering its Airbus A320 fleet. Peter Foster, President and CEO, signed the corresponding contract. Lufthansa Technik will provide the full range of engine repair and overhaul services, including warranty management and spare engine coverage.

The new contract covers 25 planned shop visits and any non-scheduled removals. The engine repair and overhaul will be performed in Lufthansa Technik's engine shop in Hamburg. The first engine to be overhauled under the terms of the new contract is scheduled to arrive in the shop in April.

"It is a pleasure to extend our co-operation with Lufthansa Technik," John Wainwright, Senior Vice President, Engineering & Maintenance, Air Astana, says. "It is important to us to offer a safe and competitively priced service to our passengers, and an essential enabling factor for us is the reliability and availability of our engines."

"We have already been working on the terms and conditions of this contract since May 2015, when we received the first V2500 engine from Air Astana in our shop," Denis Kanevskiy, Sales Manager Lufthansa Technik, says. "We are delighted that we were able to convince Air Astana of our high quality and competitive V2500 engine services to sign this long-term exclusive agreement".

The new contract further intensifies the business relationship between the two companies. Lufthansa Technik's specialist for regional aircraft engines, Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey, already supports Air Astana since it started operations in 2002. And in 2014, a five-year contract comprising engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services as well as spare engine support for its fleet of CF34-10E powered Embraer E190 aircraft was signed.
