GoAir, the leading Indian low-cost carrier based in Mumbai, has substantially expanded its business relationship with Lufthansa Technik. In April 2014 GoAir had already signed an initial Total Engine Support TES® contract, covering a total of 16 CFM56-5B engine overhaul events. The airline has now extended the contract by additional 18 engine overhaul events to accommodate to the growth of its fleet, consisting entirely of Airbus A320 family aircraft.
The extended contract is already in effect, making Lufthansa Technik the preferred MRO provider for component and engine maintenance of GoAir’s growing fleet. GoAir offers domestic passenger services with over 140 daily flights connecting to 22 cities.
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO GoAir said: “The decision to extend the contract was fairly simple considering Lufthansa Technik’s adaptability to GoAir’s requirements and good partnership.”
Lufthansa Technik provides a door to door service, supporting the airline’s reliability target. Lufthansa Technik’s partnership philosophy, the service quality provided and its pro-active approach have been the essential ingredients in forging this successful relationship.
