Lufthansa Technik Expanding Capabilities for the CFM LEAP Engine
As the first independent MRO provider worldwide to sign a CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA) for both the LEAP-1A and LEAP-1B engines, Lufthansa Technik is now preparing to induct its first LEAP-1B engine in November this year. LEAP engines are a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines.
Lufthansa Technik is also an authorized LEAP-1A service provider licensed by CFM International and already has extensive experience with the LEAP-1A, servicing it for four years and serving a variety of customers, ranging from airlines to lessors and OEMs as well.
"Lufthansa Technik's induction of its first CFM LEAP-1B engine in the coming weeks is a key milestone for our open LEAP MRO network. As our first CBSA, Lufthansa Technik has gained significant experience with the engine, and we are very confident in their capabilities to provide world-class MRO support," says Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International.
"We are very grateful for our successful partnership and CFM International's support in preparing us to offer our services for the LEAP-1B," says Derrick Siebert, vice president of Commercial Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik.
Lufthansa Technik offers MRO solutions to the customers' specific needs, varying from Cyclean® engine wash, housekeeping services, mobile engine services, quick turns to performance restoration workscopes.
