Mexico, and Lufthansa Technik have recently signed a 6-year component
supply contract, completely effective from September 1st, 2012, for
the carrier’s fleet of currently 37 aircraft of the A320 family.
Within the framework of the TCS® contract, Lufthansa Technik’s
experts will take care of all aspects relating to daily component
supplies for Volaris. The contract includes maintenance, repair and
overhaul services for the components of the current 24 Airbus A319
and 13 A320 aircraft including further Airbus aircrafts to be
delivered to the airline in the coming years. Spare components shall
be supplied to the airline’s customized home base in Mexico City. The
repair and pooling of the components will be done at Lufthansa
Technik facilities in Hamburg and Tulsa / Oklahoma.
A Lufthansa Technik representative coordinates the logistic services
on site and will be assisted by the Lufthansa Technik Customer
Support Group in Fort Lauderdale / Florida in addition to Lufthansa
Technik’s general 24/7 Aircraft-On-Ground helpdesk.
Part of the contract is also the integration of IT-services, which
guarantees the airline a seamless data exchange between Lufthansa
Technik’s manage/m maintenance web suite and Volaris’ own web-based
maintenance management system.
“Lufthansa Technik convinced us, that even a large MRO (Maintenance,
Repair and Overhaul) provider could customize its services to the
individual needs of a growing carrier that continues building a
high-frequency operation that requires the best reliability”, said
Enrique Beltranena, Chief Executive Officer of Volaris.
Wolfgang Weynell, Vice President Marketing & Sales of Lufthansa
Technik commented: “I would like to thank Volaris for the trust they
have placed in us. This contract signature is a large success for us
in the growing but highly competitive Mexican market. As a strong
partner we will offer an optimal component support to assist Volaris
in its successfully expanding business.”
Joerg Femerling, Sales Director Latin America & the Caribbean added:
“With this new contract, which is an important milestone for
Lufthansa Technik, Volaris will fully benefit from our continuous
effort to deliver the most competitive support packages and take
advantage of our long experience in the components business.”
