Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected by Austral Líneas Aereas to overhaul the landing gears of the airline’s Embraer E-Jet E190 fleet. It is the first major contract for Liebherr in Argentina. The overhaul activities have already started in July 2020 and are performed by Liebherr-Aerospace’s customer service facility in Saline, Michigan (USA).

This major landing gear overhaul contract with Austral (affiliated of Aerolíneas Argentinas) highlights the customer proximity that Liebherr-Aerospace has been developing in Latin America with its liaison office in São José dos Campos (Brazil). It is also proof of the top service level regarding landing gear overhauls executed by Liebherr Aerospace Saline, Inc., Saline, Michigan (USA), Liebherr-Aerospace’s customer service station.   

“We are very pleased with this agreement with Liebherr which provide us best technical and economical solutions for our E190 Landing Gear Campaign”, commented Juan Rubinich, Engine & Components Provisioning Manager of Austral which is the biggest domestic airline in Argentina, serving also destinations in Brazil and Uruguay.

“This contract represents another major step in our worldwide landing gear overhaul campaign. We are very happy and honored to be able to welcome Austral/Aerolíneas Argentinas as our new customer,” said Daniel Brum Pretto, Regional Sales Manager at Liebherr-Aerospace in Brazil.

The complete landing gear system for the E-Jet E1 family (E170/E175/E190/E195) has been developed, manufactured and certified by OEM Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), Liebherr’s center of competence for flight controls, landing gear systems, gears, gearboxes as well as electronics.
