Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has extended its existing Total Engine Support contract with the Norwegian Air Shuttle Group by another five years. The agreement covers all-inclusive services for CFM56-7B engines powering the airline’s fleet of 115 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
Under the agreement, LHT will handle planned an unplanned shop visits at its dedicated CFM56 engine shop in Hamburg, Germany. In addition to MRO services, the contract also includes engine lease management that will entail LHT securing the leasing of spare engines for the airline to ensure availability during peak overhaul periods.
Other services available under the contract will include regular use of LHT’s Cyclean Engine Wash, on-site service from LHT’s Airline Support Team AST Engines and the use of aerotracer—a portable device produced by LHT and Airsense Analytics to detect fume events in the cabin or cockpit.
LHT has been maintaining CFM56-7B engines for Norwegian Air Shuttle since the airline introduced the 737-800 to its fleet in 2008. It also supports the airline with a range of other services, such as extensive airframe maintenance.
