LHY to provide total base maintenance support for Norwegian Air Shuttle
Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA and Lufthansa Technik AG have recently signed a contract for a Total Base Maintenance Support TBS. The contract runs over a period of five years and covers Base maintenance services for Norwegian’s growing Boeing 737-800 fleet, which already comprises 55 aircraft of this type. The main features of TBS are a sweeping slot guarantee and a commercial package that is geared towards the customer’s needs. For example, one of Norwegian’s requirements was that all of its TBS aircraft should be overhauled at the Lufthansa Technik site in Budapest / Hungary during the winter season, as Budapest is a high frequency destination of the airline and therefore no ferry-flights are needed. Furthermore – as a TBS customer – Norwegian has access to LHT’s whole Base Maintenance Network of facilities for any additional or unplanned Maintenance needs. To simplify technical data exchange and to optimize electronic maintenance management for the customer Lufthansa Technik has created an interface to the AMOS system of Norwegian.
