Lufthansa Technik AG and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) signed a comprehensive engine support contract. The German company will look after the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines of the six Airbus A310s in PIA’s fleet. The five-year contract covers spare engine support, engineering services, logistics and repair and overhaul.
The new partnership follows the recent signing of a three-year contract covering technical services for the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127 engines in PIA’s fleet of six ATR42 turboprop aircraft, to be provided by Lufthansa Technik’s subsidiary Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey. The first engine is currently undergoing overhaul at its facility near Frankfurt.
“The Lufthansa Technik Group is a competent and reliable partner delivering customized services to our needs at competitive prices”, said Samin Uddin Naqvi, PIA’s Director Engineering and Maintenance.
“This is the first long term contract between Lufthansa Technik and PIA. PIA has had a long tradition of operating the first ever national airline of Pakistan. We look forward to a lasting cooperation between the two companies”, says Ziad al Hazmi, General Manager Gulf, Lufthansa Technik.
