Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP) has welcomed Cebu Pacific’s (CEB) first Airbus A330neo aircraft, RP-C3900, for its inaugural base maintenance on 17 November 2023.

This marks the beginning of a series of maintenance events to support CEB’s growing A330neo fleet.

Lufthansa Technik Philippines conducts C1 maintenance checks, cabin revitalization services and aircraft weighing procedures, and the Cebu Pacific A330neo is the latest addition to its extensive aircraft maintenance service capability.

History of Collaboration

The collaboration between Cebu Pacific and Lufthansa Technik Philippines traces back to 2011 when it began with line maintenance for CEB’s narrow-body fleet.

Over the years, this partnership has evolved to encompass base maintenance for both A320 and A330 fleets.

Now, as CEB pushes forward with its fleet modernization initiatives, the airline operates five A330neo aircraft, with an additional eleven soon to join its ranks.

Lufthansa Technik Philippines, a stalwart in the aviation maintenance industry, is set to undertake C1 maintenance checks, cabin revitalization services, and aircraft weighing procedures for CEB’s A330neo.

Notably, LTP is the first in its global network to provide comprehensive A330neo aircraft maintenance services. This underlines their global reputation in delivering top-tier aviation maintenance and engineering support.
