Two major Asian airlines entrusted Lufthansa Technik with the technical support for the HGT1700 auxiliary power units (APU) of their A350-900 fleets.

South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines signed a ten year long-term contract for the HGT1700 APUs of its planned fleet of 30 A350-900 aircraft. The services will be provided in the frame of an exclusive time and material agreement and will start in August 2018. All repairs will be performed in the workshops at Lufthansa Technik's
headquarters in Hamburg, Germany.

Vietnam Airlines also entrusted the maintenance of its HGT1700 APUs to Lufthansa Technik and signed an exclusive time and material contract. The national carrier of Vietnam will operate a fleet of 14 A350-900s.

Lufthansa Technik is the official warranty station and partner of original equipment manufacturer Honeywell for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of the HGT1700 APU. The German company has a vast experience in APU overhauls and value-adding engineering services. Lufthansa Technik is also continuously collaborating first-hand with the manufacturers in the improvement of repair processes and related technologies.
