Safran Nacelles and Lufthansa Technik signed a license agreement for MRO of Airbus A320neo’s LEAP-1A nacelles. Over 2,500 nacelles produced by Safran Nacelles are currently in service on Airbus A320neo aircraft that are powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines. Lufthansa Technik is becoming a member of Safran Nacelles’ licensed MRO network. The company will be able to carry out warranty tasks, repairs and modifications guaranteed by Safran Nacelles, the OEM. 

Thus, in combination with its existing rotable asset pool of LEAP-1A spares, Lufthansa Technik can offer its customers spare availability from OEM stock locations and MRO services. A320neo operators will benefit from Safran Nacelles and Lufthansa Technik’s extensive repair experience and are assured to find a station nearby so that repair time can be shortened and the cost of logistics reduced. With this partnership, both companies will jointly ensure the highest standards in nacelle MRO for the growing fleet of Airbus A320neo. 

 Alain Berger, Safran Nacelles’ Executive Vice President – Customer Support & Services, commented: "I look forward to sharing with Lufthansa Technik our best OEM quality standards. Operators of the A320neo nacelles can therefore rest assured that they will benefit from the best repairs in an extensive network of global stations." 

Andreas Drosdowski, Vice President Aircraft Component Services at Lufthansa Technik, said:  “We are delighted to extend our long standing partnership with Safran Nacelles through this MRO license. The LEAP-1A engine type represents a major part of the future of Lufthansa Technik’s nacelle portfolio and the long term commitment to providing top level spare availability and MRO services to our valued customers.”
