FL Technics has won two contracts to provide maintenance services for Swiss International Air Lines and Germanwings.
The airlines, both part of Germany’s Lufthansa Group, will each receive base maintenance support from Lithuania-headquartered FL Technics for an undisclosed period.
Germanwings, the low-cost carrier operating out of Cologne, has already sent three of five aircraft Airbus A320 family aircraft earmarked to C- and D-checks to FL Technics’ Vilnius facility.
In total, the carrier flies 45 of the aircraft, comprised of A319s and A320s.
The agreement with Swiss, which also includes engineering and DOA services in addition to base maintenance, will run for five years.
Its first A320 has already arrived in Lithuania for a scheduled window frame replacement, an issue that FL Technics CEO Zilvinas Lapinskas said is synonymous with the aircraft in the industry. “Luckily, our engineers and technicians are experienced in dealing with these types of repairs,” he added.
Along with A320 family aircraft, FL Technics also offers base maintenance on the A330 along with Boeing 737 classic and new generation aircraft types.
