Lufthansa Technik to take over component service for Azerbaijan Airlines
Lufthansa Technik, a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, recently announced that it will take over the component service for Azerbaijan Airlines. The move represents an expansion of the cooperation between the two companies, as Lufthansa Technik has already been responsible for the maintenance of the airline's engines since 2018.
The takeover of the component service means that Lufthansa Technik will now be responsible for the repair, overhaul and maintenance of components such as avionics systems, electronics and hydraulic components for Azerbaijan Airlines. The service is performed at Lufthansa Technik workshops in Frankfurt am Main and Malta, with components usually transported to the workshops by aircraft from Azerbaijan Airlines.
According to Lufthansa Technik, the cooperation with Azerbaijan Airlines will enable further expansion in the region, as the airline plays an important role in air traffic between Europe and Asia. In addition, Lufthansa Technik's component service will help to improve Azerbaijan Airlines' aircraft availability and reliability.
The cooperation between Lufthansa Technik and Azerbaijan Airlines underlines the importance of partnerships in the aviation industry, especially in times of economic challenges. By working together, airlines like Azerbaijan Airlines can benefit from the expertise and know-how of companies like Lufthansa Technik to reduce their operating costs while ensuring the highest safety standards.
