Lufthansa Technik has welcomed back former customer Philippine Airlines in the field of Engine Maintenance Services.
The German maintenance provider has announced the firming of a three-year commitment covering the maintenance of eight CFM56-5B engines belonging to Philippine Airlines (PAL) A320ceo fleet, starting in 2024.
Phillippine Airlines Relationship
The collaboration between the Philippines national flag carrier and Lufthansa Technik is not new. PAL has previously engaged Lufthansa Technik for Total Component Support (TCS) for its Boeing 777 fleet and Base Maintenance Services (BMS).
This was carried out through Lufthansa Technik’s subsidiary in the Philippines.
This renewed partnership in engine maintenance services underscores the trust PAL places in Lufthansa Technik, backed by a track record of excellence.
PAL’s Vice President of Procurement & Logistics, William G. Tan, expressed confidence in Lufthansa Technik, saying, “Lufthansa Technik is a very reliable partner who ensures that our aircraft engines remain in optimal condition.”
“Thanks to their technical capabilities and innovative solutions, they can significantly extend the life of our engines. We decided to work with Lufthansa Technik again with the expectation that they will deliver excellent performance in the field of engine maintenance.”
Lufthansa Technik’s Capabilities
Lufthansa Technik, with its state-of-the-art facilities and a team of experienced engineers and technicians, is well-prepared to provide efficient and high-quality engine maintenance services. Their goal is clear: minimize downtime and maximize fleet performance for PAL.
Dennis Kohr, Senior Vice President Corporate Sales Asia Pacific at Lufthansa Technik, expressed his delight, stating, “We are delighted and very grateful that Philippine Airlines has chosen us as their engine maintenance partner again.”
“We take this as an opportunity to further strengthen our long-lasting partnership and are committed to delivering outstanding results for Philippine Airlines.”
