Collins Aerospace Systems and Lufthansa Technik announced a licensing agreement for nacelle MRO services on A320neo aircraft. Collins Aerospace, the original equipment manufacturer for the A320neo PW1100G nacelle, has more than 1,100 nacelles in service on this aircraft platform.  The agreement, which continues the collaboration between Collins Aerospace and Lufthansa Technik, calls for Collins Aerospace to provide Lufthansa Technik with technical and repair process information, access to OEM tooling, and rotable asset pools to support a full suite of A320neo nacelle MRO services. Building upon Collins Aerospace's eight strategically located nacelle MRO facilities, the agreement now opens A320neo operators to Lufthansa Technik's expansive MRO network around the world. Access to this expanded MRO network together with in-region asset presence and the enhanced ability to conduct on-site repairs around the world will reduce aircraft downtime, passenger delays, and transportation costs incurred by the airline. 

"As a result of this agreement, A320neo operators now have access to multiple high-quality repair center locations for nacelle MRO services," said Marc Duvall, president of Aerostructures at Collins Aerospace. "The collaborative relationship between Lufthansa Technik and Collins Aerospace, which also includes the 787 and A350XWB nacelles, ensures a high standard of quality while meeting the demands of airlines with full confidence." 

Michael Kirstein, Head of Aircraft Systems / ARC (airframe related components) at Lufthansa Technik, said: "In expanding Lufthansa Technik's collaboration with Collins Aerospace, we are expanding the network of support to the growing A320neo customer base of over 100 airlines. Furthermore, this agreement is another milestone for Lufthansa Technik to offer its comprehensive repair and asset provision services on all new aircraft types".
