Focus on engineering, digital enabling, AOG and line maintenance support, All Nippon Airways and Lufthansa Technik AG signed a MoU regarding a technical collaboration project for the Boeing  777-9. The Japanese carrier is one of the launching customers for the 777-9 while Lufthansa Technik is currently preparing its MRO readiness for the arrival of the first Lufthansa aircraft of this type planned in beginning of 2021.  The collaboration shall contribute to the success of both companies and help to enable the best-in-class dispatch reliablity for ANA and for Lufthansa Technik's future customer fleet from day one of entry into service of the 777-9.  

The two partners have already identified different engineering and maintenance areas in which they want to collaborate or have even started to do so. In the entry-into-service phase of the aircraft the two companies want to share insights and best practice in engineering services and want to collaborate in aircraft production inspection. They will also cooperate in the fields of material planning and sharing, line maintenance services and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) support. Furthermore the partners plan to develop digital maintenance predictors on the technical base of AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik's independent digital operations suite. Further upcoming fields of collaboration will constantly be discussed between the two companies.   

 "We are proud to work with Lufthansa Technik, a company with a reputation for excellence in maintenance operations, to introduce the Boeing 777-9, ANA's next-generation international aircraft," said Toshihiro Miyamae, Vice President of ANA Engineering and Maintenance Center.  "Combining the strengths of our respective companies will allow us to leverage our superior capabilities and experience to keep the Boeing 777-9 operating at peak efficiency. This exciting partnership will bring engineers from both companies together and make it possible for them to collaborate at a high level, which we believe will advance the relationship of ANA and Lufthansa Technik and serve as a foundation for innovation." 

David Doyle, Vice President Corporate Strategy, Business Development and Innovation Management at Lufthansa Technik added: "We are very proud to join forces with such a renowned airline and long time partner like ANA to prepare for the entry into service of the Boeing 777-9 in the best possible way. ANA has extensive operational experience with the current 777 and 787 aircraft generation. We are convinced that within our collaboration we will generate fast and early learnings as well as relevant insights for both companies. This knowledge will help Lufthansa Technik to efficiently support not only Lufthansa but also our other customers who will order the 777-9." 

Over the past years ANA and Lufthansa Technik have established a trustful partnership based on different contracts regarding technical component and landing gear support for a large part of ANA's aircraft fleet.
