Smartwings and Lufthansa Technik signed an agreement to support the largest Czech airline with comprehensive Engine Maintenance Services for LEAP-1B engines for its Boeing 737 MAX fleet. The first induction is planned at the beginning of 2025. In addition, the existing service contract for the CFM56-7B engines powering 30 of Smartwings’ Boeing 737NG aircraft has been extended until 2030.

Jiri Juran, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Smartwings, commented: “Based on our successful cooperation, the newly signed long-term agreement for Engine Maintenance Services of our Boeing 737 NG and MAX fleet shows our continued trust in Lufthansa Technik’s expertise and will further optimize our technical operations.”

Harald Gloy, Chief Operations & HR Officer of Lufthansa Technik, said: “We are grateful for the continued trust of our partner Smartwings. The new contract is another major milestone in our cooperation. With our capacity growth supporting the LEAP-1B engine, our customers can significantly benefit from our commitment to deliver world-class engine MRO services.” 

Lufthansa Technik already provides Smartwings with Total Component Support services for its Boeing 737NG and MAX 8 aircraft, including component MRO services and pool access as well as component delivery to selected international airports within Europe.
