Spairliners, the specialist component joint venture between AFI KLM E&M and Lufthansa Technik, has signed an agreement to provide component support for Georgian Airways’ fleet of two Embraer 190 regional aircraft.
The Hamburg-based JV said the long-term contract comprises pool access from locations in Munich and Paris and component repair services for Georgian, which also operates three Boeing 737-700s and one Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft.
Repair on the aircraft parts will be divided between Spairliners’ parent companies Lufthansa Technik and AFI KLM E&M.
Georgian Airways has prior experience of the operation, having worked with Lufthansa Technik previously on a number of MRO-related support projects.
The carrier is Spairliners’ second new Eastern European customer in 2017.
In March this year, it agreed a long-term repair, lease and exchange agreement with Ukraine International Airlines for five Embraer 190 aircraft.
