Lufthansa Technik and CFM International (CFM) have concluded a LEAP-1B CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA). Effective since January 1, 2022, this CFM license enables Lufthansa Technik to offer the widest-range of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for CFM LEAP-1B engines.

Lufthansa Technik is the first independent MRO provider to sign a CBSA for the LEAP-1B engine, enabling the company to offer high-quality, cost-efficient services for LEAP-1B engines to international customers. The LEAP-1B engine powers the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, of which more than 4,700 have been ordered to date. It is expected that up to 15,000 aircraft of this type will be operated worldwide in the future.

The CBSA includes extended licenses, access to repairs and a strong technical cooperation. Under the terms of the agreement, Lufthansa Technik will continue to make use of its extensive know-how of engine MRO and provide the full range of MRO services tailored specifically to customers’ requirements and to the needs corresponding to the life cycle of the engine. The focus will be on developing new MRO services and optimizing the operating costs for the operators of the LEAP-1B engine. The services will range from engine overhaul and parts repair to on-wing support and engineering support. Lufthansa Technik is the only independent MRO provider that holds both a CBSA for the LEAP-1A- and for the LEAP-1B engine.

LEAP engines are a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines.
