Lufthansa Technik signs A320 maintenance contract with Wizz Air
Lufthansa Technik AG and Wizz Air have further expanded their close cooperation with a five year exclusive contract covering about 150 C-checks on more than 80 Airbus A320 aircraft of Central and Eastern Europe`s largest low-fares carrier.
Beginning in March, the maintenance work ranging from C1 up to C4/C8 will be carried out by Lufthansa Technik Budapest. In the hangar of Lufthansa Technik Budapest at Ferihegy Airport, four narrow-body aircraft can undergo a C-check simultaneously in two hangar bays. In both docks the aircraft can be painted on the spot without being pulled into a special painting hangar.
The recently signed agreement carries forward a long business relationship between Wizz Air and Lufthansa Technik that dates back to the very beginning of the carrier’s operations in 2004. In addition to an exclusive Total Component Support TCS for Wizz Air`s entire fleet signed in 2009, Lufthansa Technik is already providing engineering services for the airline as well as line maintenance, also carried out at Lufthansa Technik Budapest.
