SmartLynx Airlines and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed new multiple-year agreements extending their partnership. The contracts include Maintenance services for the Airbus A320 family and Landing Gear services for the Airbus A320, A321 and A330 fleets. Based on the experience of their existing partnership, SmartLynx Airlines has entrusted Lufthansa Technik with more than 25 C-Checks for its A320 family aircraft, which will be carried out from November within the MRO experts’ base maintenance network in Europe. As of October, SmartLynx will be provided with comprehensive landing gear services, including overhauls for Airbus A320, A321 and A330 aircraft, exchange landing gears and potential loans depending on individual needs.

Since May 2023, Lufthansa Technik provides SmartLynx with a Total Component Support for their entire fleet, covering more than 60 Airbus A320, A330 and Boeing 737MAX aircraft.

Zygimantas Surintas, CEO of SmartLynx Airlines, commented: “The new agreements underline once again our focus on excellence and reliability for our customers. In order to further optimize our performance, Lufthansa Technik has proven its ability to be a reliable and innovative partner for us to support our goal of becoming the world's leading and trusted ACMI airline.”
