[email protected] (AW) Lufthansa Technik engineers create optimized maintenance programs, including interior work, to cut costs or enhance revenue for customers. Common maintenance programs and data formats could save time and money Aircraft maintenance is shared among many companies, including airlines and tiers of manufacturers, maintenance shops and parts suppliers. This piecemeal maintenance process cannot be efficiently conducted with completely different methods for each airline. Some degree of maintenance program or data format standardization is necessary. Standardizing maintenance programs would permit MROs to handle many airlines without using different inspection intervals, different task cards and differently trained workers. The growth of start-ups, reductions in engineering staff at major carriers and increasing use of leased aircraft is promoting this kind of standardization.

Lufthansa Technik, UTC Expand 787 MRO Capabilities

Lufthansa Technik and UTC Aerospace Systems have expanded their Boeing 787 component agreement to include work on interior products, sensors and integrated systems.

Lufthansa Technik and UTC Aerospace Systems have expanded their Boeing 787 component agreement to include work on interior products, sensors and integrated systems.

Their MRO cooperation for Dreamliner components started in 2011 when UTC appointed Lufthansa Technik a licensed 787 MRO provider. Then in November 2013 the two companies expanded their long-term agreement with a rotable-provisioning and MRO service agreement for UTC-manufactured nacelle components. That agreement covers nacelles on GE and Rolls-Royce engines.

The latest long-term agreement will allow Lufthansa Technik to develop and apply repairs to the majority of UTC 787 components.
