Collins Aerospace Systems (UTC) and Lufthansa Technik took advantage of the MRO Europe exhibition in London to reveal the signature of a licence contract for the maintenance of the A380's main landing gear. The only one of its kind for this programme, this agreement also comes with an asset management offer. It covers the entire lifetime of the Super Jumbo.

The Lufthansa group's MRO division will now be able to propose repair and maintenance services for this type of landing gear to other operators. Lufthansa Technik will also be able to propose its asset management services, thanks to a pool of landing gear belonging to Collins Aerospace, but which will be managed by both parties together to relieve the operations of customer airlines.

"This agreement will offer AR380 operators more possibilities for the MRO of their main landing gear and will be provided by high quality repair centres", said Ajay Mahajan, vice-president and chief executive of the Landing Systems branch of Collins Aerospace.

To enable Lufthansa Technik to develop this new capability, Collins Aerospace will be providing training, parts and its exclusive repair procedures, including access to the necessary technical publications.

Sandra Eckstein, vice-president of Aircraft Systems at Lufthansa Technik, specified that this new capability will be available from 2020 at its specialist subsidiary in London (Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK), to meet the needs of customers in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa), in particular for time and cost reduction.

"But the next step to expand our collaboration even further with Collins Aerospace in this area is already planned, as we intend to develop new repair methods for the A380's landing gear, approved by the OEM", she said.
