West Jet has contracted its CFM56-7B engine maintenance program to Lufthansa Technik.

With this agreement, the former AUA Managing Director's new employer will have access to a wide range of services, including overhaul capacity and on-site maintenance support. Under a separate agreement, Lufthansa Technik has worked with FTAI Aviation to provide access to CFM56 modules and materials to support this maintenance program. An important principle of this maintenance concept is the replacement of modules so that the service life of the engines is optimized and resources are used in the best possible way, according to the company in a press release.

“Lufthansa Technik is delighted to be working with West Jet on one of their largest maintenance programs and to continue our strong relationship. Even when subcontracting to a supplier like FTAI we are confident that we can deliver a high quality and reliable product at a competitive cost. An important pillar of our cooperation is that we are able to further optimize the service life of an engine if necessary. This results in high engine reliability and stable operations for West Jet,” said Georgios Ouzounidis, VP Corporate Sales North America at Lufthansa Technik.
