Lufthansa Technik has announced a partnership with South African owned carrier Comair for technical services and integrated fleet management.

Operations at the first two local line maintenance stations of the MRO company have already begun.

Comair has contracted Lufthansa Technik to provide Total Technical Support (TTS) for its Boeing 737 fleet.

The agreement includes integrated fleet management, known as Technical Operations Management (TOM), engineering services, the provision of consumables and expendables, integrated component delivery as part of Total Component Support (TCS) and the establishment of local line maintenance stations.

“We have worked with Lufthansa Technik before and had very good experiences with the work they do. The benefits we will see for our fleet and flight operations are more efficient maintenance processes,with our aircraft spending less time on ground,” comments Erik Venter, chief executive officer of Comair. “This partnership is an
important component of Comair’s ongoing fleet upgrade strategy. Comair already operates South Africa’s most modern and efficient fleet, and our partnership with Lufthansa Technik will enhance that position to the benefit of our customers, investors and other stakeholders.”
