The contract covers most of the spare parts required for the regular maintenance of A320 classic aircraft and will also cover the new A320neo fleet of GoAir which is expected to enter into service from 2016 onwards. The component support will be handled via the Lufthansa Technik Group network. Spare parts shall be supplied to the airline’s bases at Mumbai and Delhi. The contract also provides GoAir access to Lufthansa Technik’s manage/m technical operations WebSuite, whereby both parties shall observe just-in-time inventory management. This will enable further efficiency gains for both parties.
