Singapore, February 2024 – Liebherr-Aerospace and Japan Airlines (JAL) have finalized a long-term service contract for the overhaul of landing gears. Under this exclusive agreement, Liebherr-Aerospace will provide maintenance, overhaul, and repair services for J-Air’s E170 and E190 fleet, a subsidiary of the JAL Group.

This contract renews the partnership between JAL and Liebherr-Singapore, extending the previous overhaul program by 17 landing gear sets. Starting in mid-2024, the program will run until 2028.

“It is with great excitement that we embark on this continuous journey with Japan Airlines,” said Ekkehard Pracht, General Manager Aerospace at Liebherr-Singapore Pte Ltd. at the contract signing. “We are honored and grateful for their decision to once again entrust Liebherr-Aerospace with the overhaul of the landing gears for the remaining E170 aircraft and the entire E190 fleet. The contract is also proof of our continuous efforts to expand our footprint in the Asia-Pacific region.”

“JAL Group valued the high-quality maintenance standards that was provided by Liebherr-Aerospace and had chosen once again to collaborate with Liebherr-Aerospace. JAL Group is convinced that this partnership will further strengthen our long-term relationship” commented Kojiro Yamashita, Vice President of Procurement at Japan Airlines.
