Condor Flugdienst GmbH and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed comprehensive component support agreements for the airline’s new Airbus A32Xneo fleet, and extended the support for the A32Xceo fleet.

Overview of the Agreements

The recently brokered component support agreements between Condor Flugdienst GmbH and Lufthansa Technik AG will bolster aircraft maintenance and support services for Condor’s fleet, with a particular focus on the Airbus A32Xneo series.

The agreements, set to be effective from May 2024, encompass a wide array of services aimed at enhancing maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations, as well as facilitating spare parts pooling and homebase services for essential components.

These agreements deepen the present maintenance support regime between the German leisure airline and Lufthansa’s MRO arm.

Total Component Support (TCS)

Under the Total Component Support (TCS) agreements, Condor entrusts Lufthansa Technik with the responsibility of providing comprehensive MRO services for its Airbus fleet.

This holistic approach ensures a comprehensive support for Condor’s operations, covering both the existing A32Xceo fleet and the new A32Xneo fleet.

APIP Services for Production Oversight

In addition to MRO services, Lufthansa Technik will play a crucial role in overseeing the production process of Condor’s growing A32Xneo fleet through its Aircraft Production Inspection Program (APIP).

This entails continuous monitoring of the production process, spanning from initial subassembly inspections to final aircraft acceptance, for more than 40 Airbus aircraft.

Statements from Key Stakeholders

Christian Schmitt, COO & Accountable Manager at Condor, expressed confidence in the strengthened partnership, highlighting the alignment of Lufthansa Technik’s services with Condor’s operational agenda.

“With Lufthansa Technik, we will continue to rely on a reliable partner who supports our ambitious goals with the most suitable services for us,” said Schmitt.

Based on our previous cooperation, we have decided to further strengthen our partnership in order to benefit from Lufthansa Technik’s expertise for our existing fleet and, in future, the new fleet.”

Schmitt noted the expanded agreement formed a part of positioning Condor for fleet modernization.

Harald Gloy, Chief Operations & HR Officer at Lufthansa Technik, echoed Schmitt’s sentiments, emphasizing the pride in the extended maintenance coverage endowed by the agreement.

“It fills us with pride that we can now support Condor’s entire Airbus fleet with our excellent component services.”

“Additionally, we are pleased to contribute our experts’ extensive experience in APIP services, having supported in the production process of more than 2,300 aircraft of various types.”

Gloy underscored the significance of the agreements as a testament to the trust and collaborative spirit underlying the longstanding partnership between the two entities.
