The Russian airline Smartavia is continuing its trustful partnership with Lufthansa Technik through a multi-year agreement covering extensive component services (Total Component Support – TCS®). This new contract governs supply for Smartavia's latest fleet of Airbus A320neo aircraft over a period of six years. Service has started in May 2021, the contract includes up to ten aircraft that Smartavia currently plans to operate. 

Sergey Savostin, General Director of Smartavia, says: "We are happy to have secured the support of Lufthansa Technik for maintaining the components of our latest fleet of Airbus A320neo aircraft. In particular, Lufthansa Technik's cooperation with Woodward and FADEC as the main manufacturers of engine-related components for the LEAP-engines has convinced us that this contract will ensure the operational stability of the new aircraft." 
 
Stanislav Mitin, Corporate Key Account Manager Russia & CIS of Lufthansa Technik, says: "We are proud to continue our partnership with Smartavia by extending our component support to their latest aircraft fleet. Lufthansa Technik has gained experience on maintaining the Airbus A320neo aircraft right from the start of operations, and we are happy to share our knowledge with our Russian partner."  

 
With this Total Component Support (TCS®) agreement, the carrier benefits from an individual supply concept that enables short and fast transport routes. The services covered by the contract are customized to fulfill the requirements of Smartavia. A pool of homebase stock for the Airbus A320neo fleet has been set up at Pulkovo Airport (LED) in St. Petersburg. Comprehensive logistics support by Lufthansa Technik offers Smartavia different flexible options that are particularly useful as long as the coronavirus-pandemic still affects air transport. 
 
Lufthansa Technik already provides component support to Smartavia's fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft. In 2020, Lufthansa Technik has also concluded an agreement for engine services with the Russian carrier.
