British Airways has extended its contract with Lufthansa Technik for Base Maintenance Services for its Airbus A380 aircraft.
The contract will run from August next year for more than five years and includes services for the airline’s 12 A380s to be performed at the Lufthansa Technik Philippines facility in Manila.
“Safety is at the heart of everything we do and we’re delighted to extend our existing A380 base maintenance contract with Lufthansa Technik as a result of the continued excellent standard of service provided by
Lufthansa Technik Philippines,: said Dave Exon, Technical Director of British Airways. “This agreement ensures that our A380 aircraft have secured slots for the foreseeable future.”
“At Lufthansa Technik Philippines, we remain committed to servicing the A380 aircraft in the forseeable future.” said Elmar Lutter, CEO of Lufthansa Technik Philippines.
Lufthansa Technik Philippines will manage the aircraft via AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik’s digital operations suite in order to track, coordinate and report on the checks. The digital platform provides real time multi-user information access on the check status, including open items, next steps, completion level and many other functions, ensuring an additional layer of reassurance around the safety of all operations.
