All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Lufthansa Technik have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding a technical collaboration project for the Boeing 777-9. The Japanese carrier is one of the launching customers for the 777-9 while Lufthansa Technik is currently preparing for the arrival of the first Lufthansa aircraft of this type, in the beginning of 2021.
The two partners have already identified different engineering and maintenance areas in which they want to collaborate or have even started to do so. In the entry-into-service phase of the aircraft, the two companies want to share insights and best practice in engineering services and want to collaborate in aircraft production inspection.
They will also cooperate in the fields of material planning and sharing, line maintenance services and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) support. The partners plan to develop digital maintenance predictors on the technical base of AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik’s independent digital operations suite, as well.
