Croatia Airlines has extended two long-standing contracts with Lufthansa Technik, covering the Airbus A320-family fleet of the state-owned airline of Croatia. The carrier currently operates six aircraft of this type.
An existing Total Component Support (TCS) contract was extended by seven years while the contract covering auxiliary power unit (APU) services was extended by five years. Croatia Airlines will also become a user of Lufthansa Technik’s digital platform AVIATAR.
“Technical expertise has strongly contributed to Croatia Airlines being recognized as a safe air company,” said Davor Bujan, Technical Director Croatia Airlines. “This cooperation expansion contract is another confirmation of the excellent relations between us and our long-standing partner, which I believe will develop further to the benefit of both parties.”
“With the extended contracts, Croatia Airlines is once again expressing its long-standing trust in Lufthansa Technik,” said Jens Henningsen, Senior Executive Corporate Sales Europe at Lufthansa Technik. “In 2017, we commemorated 25 years of corporation. We will continue working very closely together as partners to ensure the highest reliability, performance and safety.”
Lufthansa Technik has been a maintenance partner to Croatia Airlines since 1992, when the MRO provider started to support the Boeing 737 fleet of Croatia Airlines with an integrated Total Technical Support (TTS) contract. In 1997, when Croatia Airlines’ included its first Airbus A320 in its fleet, Lufthansa Technik was also chosen as a provider of TTS. The carrier’s Bombardier Q400 turboprops have also been under a Total Component Support (TCS) since 2008.
