AirAsia X extends contract with Lufthansa Technik Philippines
Entrusts its Airbus fleet once more
In a show of its continued trust in Lufthansa Technik Philippines, AirAsia X, the world’s first successful long-haul, low-cost airline, renewed its contract with the Manila-based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company.
Anaz Ahmad Tajuddin, AirAsia X’s Head of Engineering said: “The expansion of the agreement between AirAsia X and Lufthansa Technik Philippines is our commitment towards providing continuous quality services to our passengers. The teamwork and partnership we receive from Lufthansa Technik Philippines has ensured proven reliability of our aircraft thus far. We look forward to further breed this partnership in ensuring we are the world’s best.”
The signing of the supplemental contract comes a year after the signing of the three-year base maintenance agreement between the two companies that covers base maintenance services to AirAsia X’s Airbus fleet of nine A330s and two A340s.
The recently signed supplemental contract covers C-checks to be done this year for AirAsia X’s Airbus fleet.
During the first year of the agreement, LTP provided MRO services including C-checks, a heavy maintenance check, several cabin retrofit and aircraft painting.
“The expansion of our agreement with AirAsia X is a true manifestation of the success of our partnership with one of the world’s fastest growing airlines today. We intend to make this partnership evolve further by staying committed in delivering results in terms of quality, short and reliable turnaround times, and cost predictability,” said Dino Santos, LTP sales manager.
AirAsia X is the long-haul low fare affiliate of AirAsia, Asia’s leading and largest low-cost airline. It was introduced in January 2007 under the concept of providing long-haul flights at affordable rates. AirAsia X’s network of destinations includes Australia, China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan France, India, New Zealand, Tehran and the UK.
