Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has extended engine services collaboration with Rossiya Airlines, German MRO provider revealed last week during MRO Russia & CIS 2021 conference.

Lufthansa Technik has contracted additional engine shop visits from Rossiya, an Aeroflot group’s carrier. Until mid-2022, the company will overhaul four CFM56-5B engines at its engine shop in Hamburg, Germany.

“Lufthansa Technik’s offer for the supply of life-limited parts as well as its recommendations for work scope planning and extensive warranty conditions convinced us to entrust our German partner with the overhaul of our CFM56-5B-engines,” says Sergey Starikov, official representative of Rossiya Airlines.

“We’re happy to continue our partnership with Rossiya Airlines with this new maintenance contract for its CFM56-5B engines. The tender process by Rossiya Airlines was highly competitive and challenging, and we’re delighted to have met the high standards of our customer in this process,” says Stanislav Mitin, Key Account Manager for Russia and CIS at Lufthansa Technik.

Lufthansa Technik has been providing engine services to Rossiya Airlines since 2019, originally for the CF6-8 engine. Meanwhile, four engines of this type have been overhauled.

Despite being world’s largest operator of Russian-made Superjet 100 regional jets, Rossiya utilizes a sizeable fleet of Western-built airliners: Airbus A320, Boeing 737NG, Boeing 777 and Boeing 747.
