LEAP-1A: Lufthansa Technik has its first customer

Sweden's Nova Airlines AB (Novair) has signed an exclusive, long-term maintenance contract with Lufthansa Technik to service its CFM International LEAP-1A engines.

The first engines are expected by the German company's engine shop in Hamburg by the end of the year. This is the first LEAP-1A maintenance contract for Lufthansa Group's MRO subsidiary.

"The signature of the first LEAP-1A contract is a real milestone for Lufthansa Technik. I would like to thank Novair for the trust they set in us and their willingness to extend our long standing relationship by the technical support for this new engine type," said Dietmar Focke, Vice President Engine Services at Lufthansa Technik in a press release. "We are ramping-up our capability and capacity to support our customers in the early phase of their operations and beyond. This agreement with Novair is another milestone to become one of the leading LEAP full service providers".

Novair has been a customer of Lufthansa Technik since 2005, with a contract covering its IAE V2500 engines (A320ceo family).

The new contract covers a range of services, such as engineering,, overhaul and testing, mobile engine services (MES), engine parts repair and warranty handling.

Novair has two leased Airbus A321neos powered by LEAP-A, which were delivered during summer 2017.

In 2017, the Franco-American engine manufacturer had granted a licence to the first two third-party MRO companies, Lufthansa Technik and AFI KLM E&M, enabling them to offer maintenance services for LEAP-1As (A320neo family) and LEAP-1Bs (737 MAX family).

The Lufthansa Group's MRO subsidiary had joined the CFM International LEAP-1A support network by signing a CBSA (CFM Branded Service Agreement) in 2018. Lufthansa Technik obtained approval from the German Federal Civil Aviation Office (LBA) a few weeks ago to work on this type of engine.
