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.

“This agreement will provide WOW air with the support needed while launching our U.S./Europe A330 widebody network, by minimizing technical delays and optimizing dispatch reliability,” said Aegir Thorberg Jonsson, Director Technical Operation of WOW air.

“We are very proud to support WOW air right from the beginning of its long-haul operations,” said Georgios Ouzounidis, Vice President Sales Europe at Lufthansa Technik. “Our experience in delivering technical services for other airlines expanding their portfolio will definitely help us to offer the best solutions to WOW air. We are looking forward to build up a trustful and long-lasting partnership with them.”
