Oman Air has strengthened its strategic partnership with Lufthansa Technik. Oman Air has a seven-year Total Component Support TCS contract with the Hamburg-based company to provide component support for its new Airbus A330 fleet. The contract covers a range of services from provisioning with components at the operational site to repairs, overhauls, documentation and engineering services.

Oman Air is also backing Lufthansa Technik in the maintenance of its Boeing 737 NG fleet. From January 2010 a total of 15 C-checks will be carried out for Oman Air in the Lufthansa Technik Group’s operations in Malta, Budapest and Sofia. The three maintenance facilities work to the latest standards and are able to offer minimal turnaround times at competitive prices.

A new, state-of-the-art hangar will be built at Muscat International Airport, which is in the middle of a modernisation and expansion program to deal with the increase in the number of tourists coming to Oman. From 2012, it will be possible for up to two wide body and two narrow body aircraft to be handled in the hangar. Over 300 technicians and mechanics will offer aircraft maintenance through to light C-checks for Airbus A330, Boeing 737 NG, ATR 42 and other fleet type belonging to Oman Air and other customers.

Wilhelm Henningsen, Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Technik AG said, “With this strategic partnership between Oman Air and Lufthansa Technik, we are strengthening a well-established cooperative relationship. In the future we will be able to offer technical services directly in Oman to customers in a region that is one of the growth markets of international aviation.”
