Lufthansa Technik AG and the Iceland-based low-cost airline WOW air have signed a comprehensive three-year component support agreement for the carrier’s new fleet of three Trent 700-powered Airbus A330 aircraft. The contract period commenced on 1 August 2016.

The Total Component Support TCS® contract covers the overhaul of line replaceable units (LRU), pooling and home base lease. Component supply will be realized via the Lufthansa Technik facilities in Frankfurt and Hamburg as well as through the US-based Lufthansa Technik warehouses.
