LHT signs base maintenance contract for fifteen Boeing 737NG of Oman Air
At the MRO Middle East in Dubai, Oman Air and Lufthansa Technik signed a base maintenance contract for Oman Air’s fifteen Boeing 737 NG aircraft.
The C-checks include ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System) modifications for nine of these aircraft. The checks and modifications will take place at the Lufthansa Technik base maintenance location in Budapest, Hungary.
This new base maintenance contract comes at the heels of the completion of a similar C-check program in 2010 for the same aircraft fleet. Besides the recurring base maintenance contract, Oman Air also receives complete component support for its entire A330 fleet. Additionally, both companies are in talks for a much wider cooperation in the region on the back of an LOI for a strategic cooperation agreement executed at the Dubai Airshow in 2009.
