Cyclean Engine Wash strengthens presence in Asia
Lufthansa Technik has won two new Asian customers for Cyclean Engine Wash. Asiana Airlines and Hong Kong Airlines now number amongst the more than 30 airlines worldwide using the MRO provider’s product. Lufthansa Technik already offers the engine cleaning service at stations in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. Asiana Airlines began cleaning the engines for its entire fleet with the Cyclean System in Seoul, Korea, in December 2013. Hong Kong Airlines became the newest customer in January 2014, with its own fleet along with the fleet of its subsidiary, Hong Kong Express, having CFM56-5B, PW4000 and RR Trent 700 engines cleaned at the Hong Kong hub.The system’s autonomous functionality, with no need for an external power or water supply, makes planning the engine washing for Hong Kong Airlines even more flexible.
