SAS and Lufthansa Technik expand cooperation by more than 150 C-checks
Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) and Lufthansa Technik AG, headquartered in Hamburg, are expanding their long-standing close partnership even further. Under a new agreement that takes effect immediately and runs through the end of 2018, Lufthansa Technik will take on more than 150 C-checks for the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737NG and Airbus A320 family aircraft. As a consequence, more than 100 aircraft will be newly added to Lufthansa Technik’s international overhaul network, in which C-checks for SAS’ fleet of Airbus A330/340 aircraft are already carried out by Lufthansa Technik Malta. Checks of the Boeing 737NG and Airbus A320 aircraft will be performed primarily by Shannon Aerospace, Lufthansa Technik Group’s Irish overhaul operation, and by Lufthansa Technik Sofia.
