Condor Flugdienst and Lufthansa Technik signed a comprehensive contract regarding component support of the airline's new and efficient Airbus A330neo fleet. Under the terms of the ten-year agreement, Lufthansa Technik will provide Total Component Support for the Airbus A330-900neo aircraft that will join Condor's fleet in the coming years. For Lufthansa Technik it is the first TCS contract for this modern long-haul type. 

The contract, which comes into effect on January 1, 2023, covers not only the classic supply of components but also various parts-pooling and logistics services, including the establishment of a so-called homebase stock at Condor's operations center at Frankfurt Airport. The close proximity and long-standing cooperation between the two companies will enable Condor to maximize efficiency in its technical operations and ensure the best possible availability of the spare parts it needs. Various maintenance, repair and overhaul services for Condor's A330neo components are also part of the agreement.  

Christian Schmitt, COO and Accountable Manager at Condor, commented: "The supply of necessary components for our new aircraft is an important aspect for the service entry and operation of the A330neo. The continued cooperation with Lufthansa Technik AG ensures for us a consistently optimal support according to the highest quality standards in this area. We are convinced of the work of Lufthansa Technik AG as well as the services it offers and look forward to having this important reliable partner at our side in the long term." 

Kai-Stefan Roepke, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East and Africa at Lufthansa Technik, said: "New contracts with Condor are always important milestones for us, because we enjoy a trustful collaboration for decades. Nevertheless, this milestone is a special one for me. Not only because with the A330neo, for the first time, Airbus' latest aircraft program will also benefit from our component services, but also because we were able to win this contract in a very competitive environment. I am very grateful to Condor for the trust they have placed in us." 

The TCS for Condor's A330neo fleet continues a successful collaboration that has been in place for many years. Lufthansa Technik already provides reliable component services for Condor's other Airbus and Boeing subfleets. The two companies also work together in many other MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) areas, such as engine and landing gear maintenance. This year Condor also became the first airline customer for Lufthansa Technik's HeatNow cabin floor heating system.
