Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik Enhance Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Services for Airbus A350 Fleets in Asia Pacific

 
  • Airbus A350 operators in region will benefit from quicker support of Honeywell components, contributing to less downtime and greater aircraft availability.

 

SINGAPORE, May 13, 2019 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and Lufthansa Technik will heighten their collaboration on Airbus A350 maintenance, repair and overhaul services in the Asia Pacific region. Lufthansa Technik will act as a licensed component repair center and exclusive global asset service provider in Asia Pacific for more than 200 Honeywell shipped components onboard the Airbus A350. Greater accessibility to services, parts and best-in-class engineering support will help A350 operators in the region maximize operation of their aircraft through improved fleet availability and readiness.

“Maintenance is a costly and complex process, but we see our work with Honeywell as an opportunity to help A350 operators in Asia Pacific simplify their maintenance experience,” said Gerald Steinhoff, senior vice-president, Corporate Sales, Asia Pacific, Lufthansa Technik. “Honeywell provides top-of-line technologies that are crucial to the A350. By integrating our world-class asset management and in-region repair centers, we can provide operators in Asia Pacific with better access to support all of Honeywell’s key components on the A350. Over the next one and a half years we will significantly expand our local capacities in this area.”

Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik have been working together to provide A350 operators with maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services since the aircraft first entered service in late 2014. Through this strengthened partnership, A350 operators in Asia Pacific will receive quicker access to Lufthansa Technik’s in-house services, including single-component MRO or more integrated flight-hour based “nose-to-tail” asset availability solutions. Increased quantities of A350 components for exchange or rental will be readily available, thanks to Lufthansa Technik’s global logistics network. Operators can also be assured of a holistic approach to their MRO needs through Honeywell embedded support at Lufthansa Technik, and integrated engineering and customer support teams to ensure key product and repair performance requirements are met.

“The Airbus A350 is in service with many airlines across the Asia Pacific region. As an aircraft that is so widely depended upon, airline operators feel a mounting pressure to do everything they can to keep their A350s performing at optimally,” said Sathesh Ramiah, senior director, Asia Pacific, Commercial Aviation, Honeywell Aerospace. “By increasing the number of serviceable components and using our Connected Aircraft technologies, we are confident that customers will have hands-on access to support all their Honeywell-related maintenance needs.”

Lufthansa Technik has four years of operational experience with more than 2000 repairs completed across the entire fleet of A350s in operation. It currently provides direct service for more than 12 in-service A350 fleets, including seven operators in Asia Pacific under exclusive contract, representing more than 200 aircraft in service or on order. This extended agreement reinforces Honeywell’s relationship with Lufthansa Technik as a Honeywell-licensed repair facility for mechanical parts, avionic components and hydro-mechanical units. Together, both companies can help reduce aircraft downtime, providing faster turnarounds for getting aircraft back in service for operators in Asia Pacific.
