Saudi-Arabia's low-cost airline flyadeal and Lufthansa Technik have signed a comprehensive aircraft engineering services contract, which will run over four years and will cover the complete flyadeal A320 fleet.
One of the major components of the agreement is the set-up of a new maintenance control centre. This will include a full Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) and aircraft engineering support from Lufthansa Technik.
Lufthansa Technik will also organize trouble shooting and will help flyadeal to establish an optimized maintenance program which allows highly efficient operations due to an optimized maintenance schedule.
CEO of flyadeal, Con Korfiatis said, "Flyadeal was launched in late September to serve the rapidly expanding travel market in Saudi Arabia and more broadly in the region. We plan to grow the airline quickly and have put the pillars in place for a high quality operation operating world's best practice with the support of the world's best partners. We are very pleased to partner with Lufthansa Technik, who shares our vision and brings the highest standards to our maintenance organization."
"We are very proud that flyadeal has selected us to accompany them on their growth path right from the beginning," said Robert Gaag, vice president Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East, Africa from Lufthansa Technik. "We are sure that our offer will be able to fulfil the service and business model expectations of flyadeal. We are looking forward to cooperate with this new low cost carrier in the next years."
Further services for flyadeal for example include compliance assessment of airworthiness authority requirements and manufacturer recommendations, reliability management, monitoring of life limited parts (LLP) and product engineering support. – TradeArabia News Service
