Safran Landing Systems and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed a long-term contract on A380 landing gear services.

Safran Landing Systems and Lufthansa Technik will combine their respective areas of A380 landing gear MRO expertise. For Safran Landing Systems it will be their Singappore facility and for Lufthansa Technik the one in London, to deliver optimized solutions that cover all aspects of the so-called superjumbo jet's landing gear. This extensive asset and MRO partnership will provide airlines with a single point of contact throughout the whole commercial and industrial chain, thus a comprehensive A380 landing gear support. Airlines will be free to send their complete set of landing gear to one of the partners, thus avoiding complex processes.

Bruno Chiarelli, Safran Landing Systems Executive Vice President, MRO Division, said: "We are proud to team up with Lufthansa Technik to offer our customers the best solutions in terms of competitiveness and logistics. They will benefit from the combined expertise of an OEM/MRO and a "nose to tail" MRO service provider, both world-class in their field."

Sandra Eckstein, Vice President of Aircraft Systems at Lufthansa Technik, added: "This far-reaching partnership with Safran Landing Systems enables us to offer a complete MRO landing gear service portfolio for the A380. Our customers will benefit from their combined expertise, with Lufthansa Technik also contributing our comprehensive A380 main landing gear support capabilities."
