China Cargo Airlines has extended its contract with Lufthansa Technik that covers component support for the airline’s Boeing freighter aircraft.

Under the 15-year contract, over ten Boeing 777-200 freighters are covered with fully customised and extensive component services. Lufthansa Technik says it will support China Cargo Airlines’ main base in Shanghai with its component service offices in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Hamburg to coordinate customer support and ensure 24/7 worldwide AOG services at different locations which are vital for flight operations.

Maintenance, repair and overhaul services will be performed at Lufthansa Technik’s component centres in Hamburg, Germany and Shenzhen, China.

Mr. Liu Gang, Vice President of China Cargo Airlines, highly commended Lufthansa Technik’s service performance level for their existing 747-400F fleet during the past few years: “Our long-term cooperation with Lufthansa Technik started already in 2000 and we have been great partners on the aviation journey for more than two decades. By given fully customised component service scope, we are very confident to continuously rely on Lufthansa Technik in servicing our new 777-200 freighters. ”

“This long-term agreement enhances Lufthansa Technik’s position as a key MRO provider on the Boeing 777 freighter components,” said Dr. Georg Fanta, Head of Commercial Aircraft Component Services, Lufthansa Technik. “We also bring a breadth of engineering expertise and extensive experience alongside with our global logistics network to provide seamless support to our customers. ”
