Safran and Lufthansa Technik sign MRO partnership agreement for A380 landing gear
Safran Landing Systems and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed a
long-term contract on A380 landing gear services.
The two companies will combine their respective areas of A380 landing
gear MRO expertise at their Singapore (Safran Landing Systems) and
London (Lufthansa Technik) facilities to deliver optimized solutions
that cover all aspects of the so-called superjumbo jet's landing
gear. This extensive asset and MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul)
partnership will provide airlines with a single point of contact
throughout the whole commercial and industrial chain, thus a
comprehensive A380 landing gear support. Airlines will be free to
send their complete set of landing gear to one of the partners, thus
avoiding complex processes.

Division, said: "We are proud to team up with Lufthansa Technik to

in their field."

Technik, added: "This far-reaching partnership with Safran Landing
Systems enables us to offer a complete MRO landing gear service
portfolio for the A380. Our customers will benefit from their
combined expertise, with Lufthansa Technik also contributing our
comprehensive A380 main landing gear support capabilities."
