GA Telesis Engine Services (GATES) and Lion Air have entered into a long-term engine maintenance contract covering the airline’s Boeing 737NG fleet.

This strategic win for GATES covers maintenance, repair, and overhaul of CFM56-7B engines across Lion Air Group airlines (including Batik Malaysia and Thai Lion Air). In addition, it includes leased engine support, LLP management, and logistics. The first engine maintenance event will enter a GATES maintenance slot in early October 2022.

Lion Air, the largest airline in Indonesia and second-largest low-cost airline in Southeast Asia, now has a large majority of the domestic market share post-pandemic and continues to add capacity to meet increased passenger travel.
