Lufthansa Technik to provide Total Component Support for Boeing 787 fleet of Air Canada
Lufthansa Technik AG is once again expanding its involvement in the provision of technical support for the Boeing 787, after signing an agreement with Air Canada. Canada’s largest airline has signed a 12-year Total Component Support TCS contract with Lufthansa Technik, starting with the delivery of the first aircraft from Boeing to Air Canada in the first quarter of 2014. So far, Air Canada has confirmed 37 Boeing 787 orders with another 23 options. Lufthansa Technik will invest significantly over the contractual period to guarantee an optimal service to Air Canada, including the appointment of an on-site program manager at Air Canada’s head office in Montreal and expansion of its component pool in Miami, Florida.
