Lufthansa Technik and Taiwan based airline China Airlines have comprehensively expanded their partnership by entering into a new  long term agreement for component services (Total Component Support, TCS®) for China Airlines Airbus A350 fleet.

According to the contract, the Hamburg/Germany-based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider is now responsible for the component supply of the airline’s Airbus A350 fleet.

In addition, Lufthansa Technik will provide a worldwide AOG support for China Airlines modern wide body fleet using Lufthansa Technik’s well established network including the component pools in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

C.J. Huang, Senior Vice President at China Airlines said: “After a long selection process we came to the conclusion that Lufthansa Technik could offer us the high level of performance and reliability that we are in need of for the component support of our new A350 fleet. We believe partnering with Lufthansa Technik is a win-win strategic move and will further strengthen the collaboration between China Airlines and Lufthansa Technik.”

“We are proud to extend our partnership with China Airlines by supporting their new flagship, the A350.
