Lufthansa Technik AG and the low-cost carrier Jetstar Pacific, which is headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, have signed a comprehensive engine maintenance agreement. Under the terms of the contract, Lufthansa Technik will overhaul the V2500 engines in Jetstar Pacific’s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft. The contract covers a term of three years, during which a total of 18 shop load events will be performed.

Le Hong Ha, Chief Executive Officer of Jetstar Pacific, says: “This cooperation with Lufthansa Technik, our trusted partner, will offer further support for our fleet development. Jetstar Pacific not only provides daily low-fare flights, its technical management also aims to achieve a cost efficiency oriented towards international standards.”

Robin Johansson, Director Sales South East Asia and Australia/Pacific Lufthansa Technik, says: “Vietnam is a very cost-sensitive market. We are pleased to welcome Jetstar Pacific as a new customer for engine overhauls. The fact that Jetstar Pacific selected Lufthansa Technik is additional proof that our engine MRO product delivers the best ratio between quality, performance and price.”

Jetstar Pacific is the first low-cost carrier in Vietnam. The brand is very strong and enjoys a high level of trust among the Vietnamese. The airline has grown from five aircraft in 2013 to twelve aircraft by the end of 2015, and now serves 32 domestic and international routes. Its two major shareholders, Vietnam Airlines and Qantas Group, have committed themselves to the long-term development and success of Jetstar Pacific, and have plans to increase the Jetstar Pacific fleet to 30 aircraft by 2020.
