AirAsia X signs MRO agreement with Lufthansa Technik Philippines

AirAsia X has appointed Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP) as its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services provider for Malaysian carrier’s fleet of eight Airbus aircraft which comprises Airbus A330s and A340s for three years beginning March 2010 at LTP’s facility in Manila.

LTP is a subsidiary of Hamburg-based Lufthansa Technik AG, the largest MRO provider in the world and AirAsia X is an affiliate of short-haul carrier AirAsia, Asia’s leading and largest low-cost airline.

LTP will provide for the first year of the contract MRO services including four C-checks and a heavy maintenance check. LTP will also carry out several cabin retrofit tasks to comply with AirAsia X’s new premium and economy seating specifications.

In January 2010, an AirAsia X A340 successfully underwent a 40-hour layover involving a main landing gear seal change at the LTP facility in Manila.
