SR Technics signs major engine MRO agreement with Eurowings
Aug 18, 2018: Eurowings, the Lufthansa Group’s low-cost airline, has inked two year engine maintenance, repair & overhaul agreement with SR Technics, a leading MRO service provider, at the end of June 2018.
The agreement covers part of the airline’s CFM56-5B fleet.
All work under the new agreement will be completed at SR Technics Zurich Airport facility and covers engine maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions, including airfoils repairs in SR Technics’ Cork, Ireland facility, and the full parts and material management for more than 30 engines.
Cooperation with Eurowings began in January of this year and in order to meet the demands of the carrier’s large engine shop visit demands, SR Technics provided single engine shop visit offers to customise its services. This, combined with slots that met the carrier’s planning needs and SR Technics’ continuous support, was key to clinching the two-year contract.
Michael Knitter, chief operations officer of Eurowings states: “Optimal technical support for our aircraft is an essential prerequisite for the success of Eurowings. As currently the fastest growing airline in Europe, we rely only on the best service providers. We are proud to be able to rely also on SR Technics for this.”
