Smartavia is continuing its partnership with Lufthansa Technik through a multi-year agreement covering extensive component services (Total Component Support – TCS).
The new contract governs supply for Smartavia’s latest fleet of Airbus A320neo aircraft over a period of six years. Service started in May 2021. The contract includes up to ten aircraft that Smartavia currently plans to operate.
“We are happy to have secured the support of Lufthansa Technik for maintaining the components of our latest fleet of Airbus A320neo aircraft,” said Sergey Savostin, General Director of Smartavia. “In particular, Lufthansa Technik’s cooperation with Woodward and FADEC as the main manufacturers of engine-related components for the
LEAP-engines has convinced us that this contract will ensure the operational stability of the new aircraft.”
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Smartavia by extending our component support to their latest aircraft fleet,” said Stanislav Mitin, Corporate Key Account Manager Russia & CIS of Lufthansa Technik. “Lufthansa Technik has gained experience on maintaining the Airbus A320neo aircraft right from the start of operations, and we are happy to share our knowledge with our Russian partner.”
With this Total Component Support (TCS®) agreement, the carrier benefits from an individual supply concept that enables short and fast transport routes. The services covered by the contract are customized to fulfill the requirements of Smartavia. A pool of homebase stock for the Airbus A320neo fleet has been set up at Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg.
Lufthansa Technik already provides component support to Smartavia’s fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft. In 2020, the company also concluded an agreement for engine services with the Russian carrier.
