Preparations for LEAP operation underway at Lufthansa Technik
First engine expected in Hamburg in 2018
Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg, Germany is currently preparing to offer
on-wing and MRO services for the CFM International* LEAP-1A (Airbus
A320neo) and -1B (Boeing 737 MAX) engine. Therefore, Lufthansa
Technik is one of the first MRO providers to support customers
worldwide already in the early stages of their operation of LEAP
In addition to building up repair capacity for the LEAP engine by
providing staff training courses and investing in the essential
tooling, Lufthansa Technik will also focus on extending its
on-wing/on-site Airline Support Team (AST) services.
Lufthansa Technik will provide LEAP services for the entire
lifecycle. Depending on the MRO requirements and the engine life
cycle phase, this covers the complete range of MRO services: from
engine overhaul and parts repair to on-wing support and innovative
engineering; from work scoping to active cost of ownership.
Comprehensive capability is being built up step-by-step from now on.
Bernhard Krueger-Sprengel, Vice President Engine Services at
Lufthansa Technik, said: "The agreement with CFM International to
become one of the first providers for LEAP engines is another
milestone in our long-lasting extensive relationship. Lufthansa
Technik will continue to fulfill its aspiration to be a key player in
the MRO services for the next generation engine technology and offer
its vast expertise, performance and quality over the next decades to
