Exclusive Base Maintenance Support for Eurowings' Airbus A320 Family Fleet

Lufthansa Technik is to provide comprehensive base maintenance support for Eurowings’ Airbus A320 family fleet. The agreement was recently signed with Eurowings Technik, the airline’s technical operations department. Two exclusive lines at Lufthansa Technik Budapest and two additional lines at Lufthansa Technik Sofia will be dedicated to fulfill different letter checks on about 40 Eurowings aircraft during the winter seasons in the coming years.  

Eurowings and Lufthansa Technik can look back on many years of cooperation, which includes component services and engine services for various engine types. In addition, Eurowings was one of the first users of Lufthansa Technik's AVIATAR and has been benefiting from the advantages of digital solutions for technical operations since 2019.

Matthias Gruber, Vice President Technical Fleet Management Eurowings and Managing Director of Eurowings Technik, said: “Based on our long-standing cooperation, we are delighted about the new base maintenance contract with Lufthansa Technik, which will enable us to continue to guarantee the high quality standards in the technical reliability of our aircraft. It also gives us the flexibility we need to get our fleet ready for the summer during the winter season.”
