Lufthansa Technik receives approval in Israel for Israir Airlines and Tourism
Israir Airlines, a successful provider of scheduled and chartered flights from Israel, is relying on the services of Lufthansa Technik within the framework of a Technical Operations Management (TOM) contract. The core elements of the contract are maintenance services, with a permanent establishment having been set up at Tel Aviv airport especially for this purpose. This makes Lufthansa Technik the first foreign MRO provider to receive approval for line maintenance from the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI). The contract extends to the airline’s Airbus A320 fleet, which currently consists of two aircraft, with a third already on order. Lufthansa Technik employees are on-site to help Israir set up its own maintenance station. In addition to maintenance, the contract also includes engineering services as well as Total Component Support TCS for the repair of components and access to the extensive component pool. Furthermore, Lufthansa Technik is responsible for the supply of consumables and expendables. A fleet manager acting as an interface between the customer and Lufthansa Technik ensures a flawless operation.
