integrated-total-support-products-aeromorning.comintegrated Total Support products

When the new Boeing 737 MAX commences regular flight operation as

planned next year, Lufthansa Technik will be well prepared to provide
technical support for the most recent member of the Boeing 737 

Backed by its extensive expertise in the introduction of new aircraft
types, Lufthansa Technik will provide a full featured product 
portfolio for ensuring smooth operation of the Boeing 737 MAX from 
the very outset. This includes a broad range of maintenance services 
for components, from individual repair to loan and exchange parts 
from regional spare parts warehouses through to the most 
comprehensive and integrated Total Support products.

Lufthansa Technik already offers an extensive range of globally 
available products and services for operators of the various Boeing 
737 types. The spare parts warehouses for the Boeing 737 of the 
Classic and current Next Generation versions, which are established 
within easy reach of the customer, are to be extended in the process 
for the 737 MAX. For the operators of the new medium-haul aircraft, 
this means availability of material supply matching the high quality 
standards of Lufthansa Technik with fast response and turnaround 

The Boeing 737 MAX will be powered exclusively by CFM LEAP-1B 
engines, whose maintenance - as with the current CFM56 engines - will
likewise be included in the Lufthansa Technik portfolio. 

When it comes to the Americas, which represents the largest market 
for the Boeing 737, Lufthansa Technik offers services specially 
tailored to local customer requirements. The company takes account of
this market with regional customer service teams, sales offices and 
material pools at various locations on the continent as well as a 
24/7 hotline for non-routine defects (Aircraft on Ground, AOG), which
is based in Southern Florida.

The MRO provider's subsidiary Lufthansa Technik Component Services 
(LTCS) in Oklahoma is also well positioned in terms of aircraft 
components thanks to its broadly diversified service portfolio - in 
particular this also includes testing, repair and overhaul of 
components. The new American location for aircraft overhauls, 
Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico, which commenced operation in November 
2015, will also offer overhaul services for Boeing 737 aircraft to 
North and South American airlines from 2017 in addition to the Airbus
A320 family. 

With the introduction of the new aircraft, Lufthansa Technik will 
guarantee smooth operation from day one in its role as integrator. 
Lufthansa Technik has already been able to demonstrate its 
accumulated experience and expertise in the introduction of new 
aircraft types on many occasions, as for example recently with the 
introduction of the Airbus A350 in January 2015 as well as the entry 
into service of the Airbus A320neo with Lufthansa in January 2016. 

Lufthansa Technik:
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and 
associates and over 25,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading
providers of technical services for the aviation industry. Its 
portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of services for commercial 
aircraft: maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification and conversion,
engines and components.
