Volaris and Lufthansa Technik sign 6-year component services contract

 Low cost carrier Volaris, one of the fastest growing airlines in 

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.”
