Deepened Partnership With Frontier Airlines

Lufthansa Technik will provide base maintenance services for ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines’ Airbus A320 aircraft family under a new five-year contract. An additional agreement covers digital aircraft diagnostic services through the AVIATAR platform.

Approximately 300 aircraft maintenance events are scheduled for Frontier Airlines in Puerto Rico over the next five years. This was preceded by a one-year cooperation on base maintenance services on a single line at Lufthansa Technik’s base maintenance site in the Americas. Since several years Lufthansa Technik has also been providing the US airline with components services.

Two base maintenance lines reserved in Puerto Rico
Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico (LTPR) specializes in providing maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services to the Airbus A320 aircraft family. The facility’s strategic location in the Caribbean allows it to serve the needs of customers from North, Central, and South America. Covering an extensive area of 215,000 feet, the company boasts a state-of-the-art, five-line facility staffed by a team of over 400 highly qualified professionals at Rafael Hernández Airport in Aguadilla.

“Based on the results of our initial partnership with Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico, we are pleased to expand the relationship with this multi-year aircraft maintenance services agreement," said Jeffrey Moore, Vice President Technical Operations at Frontier Airlines. “Their base maintenance, components support and AVIATAR platform will help support our focus on high quality, efficient maintenance programs.”

Joerg Speri, Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico, emphasizes: “We are looking to support all aspects of base maintenance for Frontier Airlines and our other customers through our continuous commitment to excellence, quality, and safety in every project. To achieve this, we plan to integrate additional contracted services for Frontier Airlines to the upcoming maintenance activities, such as component support, and introduce new digital solutions.”

Frontier Airlines choses AVIATAR for digital fleet support
Frontier Airlines has also signed a long-term agreement to fully harness the advantages of AVIATAR. The ultra-low-fare carrier will benefit from a vast area of digital products from predictive health analytics to condition monitoring. AVIATAR’s condition monitoring collects data from various sources to offer an unparalleled overview of an aircraft’s status and components. Predictive health analytics anticipates issues, minimizing downtime, transforming maintenance events, and offering proactive recommendations, enhancing component troubleshooting efficiency. This lowers the costs of maintenance and avoids operational incidents, delays or AOGs.
