Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services VKO will procure parts and arrange for the immediate clearance through Russian customs and transportation to the Moscow facility to ensure the required parts are on-hand and immediately available when needed. Along with its cooperative partner VTS Jets, Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services VKO provides full-scale line maintenance services to customers in Moscow. AOG services are available throughout Russia and the CIS region.
