This new contract is another important milestone in Liebherr-Aerospace’s successful pursuit of landing gear overhaul campaigns. “Intense collaboration of the teams during the selection process has enabled us to find customized solutions, optimized to J-Air’s requirements. It is with gratitude, honor and excitement that we are now looking forward to further strengthening our partnership with J-Air.” commented Ekkehard Pracht, General Manager Aerospace of Liebherr-Singapore.
