Lufthansa Technik and Hawaiian Airlines signed a comprehensive Total Component Support contract covering the Honolulu-based airline’s entire Airbus A330ceo and A321neo fleets. In total, the new agreement encompasses parts pooling support for up to 52 aircraft over the next seven years. It moreover gives Hawaiian Airlines the flexible option to further extend the cooperation by several additional years.

The new agreement is Hawaiian Airlines’ first Lufthansa Technik TCS contract. It covers a total of 18 Airbus A321neo and 24 Airbus A330ceo aircraft in passenger configuration. The contract also covers ten converted Airbus A330-300 Passenger-to-Freighter aircraft which Hawaiian Airlines will operate on behalf of e-commerce giant Amazon and its Amazon Air division.

Jim Landers, Hawaiian Airlines' Senior Vice President of Technical Operations, commented: “When we set out to find a maintenance provider for components installed on our Airbus fleet, we looked for an established MRO organization that shared our focus to safely deliver reliable aircraft and components to the operation on-time and at a competitive price. We believe we found that partner with Lufthansa Technik, and we look forward to their support of our Airbus fleet in the years to come.”

Georgios Ouzounidis, Vice President Corporate Sales Americas at Lufthansa Technik, said: “We are thrilled to enhance our existing partnership with Hawaiian Airlines with this component support that will foster our long-lasting relationship. Through improved material supply and logistics, our Total Component Support guarantees optimal availability for Hawaiian Airlines’ passenger and growing freighter Airbus fleets.” 

For each aircraft, Lufthansa Technik will perform component maintenance, provide access to the company’s component pool and logistics services, and establish home base stocks at several Hawaiian Airlines maintenance bases including Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

With this TCS agreement, Hawaiian Airlines now benefits from an individual supply concept that enables short and rapid transport paths. The airline also selected Lufthansa Technik for its Aircraft Production Inspection Program (APIP) services, which includes the ten aforementioned A330 passenger-to-freighter conversions. The newly signed agreement further extends Lufthansa Technik’s growth in providing MRO services for Airbus aircraft in the United States.
