Liebherr-Aerospace signs contract with LOT Polish Airlines for E-Jet E1 landing gear overhauls
LOT Polish Airlines has selected Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, to overhaul the main and nose landing gear systems of their Embraer E-Jet E1 fleet, which comprises E170 and E175 aircraft. The contract was signed at the Farnborough International Airshow. In addition to MRO services, it includes an integrated support solution, which covers spare parts and engineering services and enables partial risk-sharing between Liebherr-Aerospace and LOT. LOT, the launch customer of the Embraer E-170 aircraft, has the first scheduled E-Jet landing gear overhauls in Europe. Following the successful overhaul campaign Liebherr perfomed for LOT’s ERJ 145 aircraft, and based on Liebherr’s experience, support package and the companies’ existing business relationship, LOT has again chosen Liebherr.
