South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines and Lufthansa Technik have extended their contract for the repair and overhaul of Asiana's CF6-80 engines powering the airline's Boeing 747 and 767 fleets. The  5 year non-exclusive contract is covering a total of 17 B767-300 and B747-400 aircraft.

This extension will strengthen Lufthansa Technik's business in the Asian market, one of the strongest growing regions, and generate a stable workload for the CF6 product line over the next years.

"There were numerous good reasons to choose Lufthansa Technik as our preferred MRO partner again," said Hoon Bae, General Manager of Aircraft & Supplies Purchasing at Asiana Airlines. "With the seamless support and services that have been delivered, we are very confident that Lufthansa Technik will always do their very best to keep us flying." 

"We are very proud that Asiana Airlines has decided to extend our trustful cooperation. We look forward to further supporting them with our knowhow and engine service capabilities", said Kijung Shin, Corporate Key Account Manager at Lufthansa Technik.

Lufthansa Technik and Asiana Airlines have been working together for more than 25 years already. Lufthansa Technik also provides component maintenance for the Asiana Boeing 777-200ER fleet, an integrated Total Component Support for the airline's Airbus A320F and A350 fleets and CF6 engine support and heavy maintenance for the carrier's Airbus A380 fleet.

Asiana Airlines was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Seoul (South Korea). The airline currently operates a fleet of 82 long-and short-haul aircraft that fly to 6 domestic and 63 international destinations in 21 countries. Its cargo route network covers 26 cities in 11 countries. Asiana Airlines became a Star Alliance member in 2003.
