MUMBAI, India, 5 Nov. 2015. GoAir, a low-cost carrier based in Mumbai, India, has substantially expanded its business relationship with Lufthansa Technik; the airline signed a Total Engine Support TES contract with Lufthansa Technik for a total of 34 CFM56-5B engine overhaul events to accommodate to the growth of its fleet, almost entirely Airbus A320 single-aisle jetliners.
GoAir offers domestic passenger services with over 140 daily flights connecting to 22 cities.
"The decision to extend the contract was fairly simple considering Lufthansa Technik's adaptability to GoAir's requirements and good partnership," says GoAir CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer.
Lufthansa Technik provides a door-to-door service, supporting the airline's reliability target, officials say.
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and about 26,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading providers of services for the aviation industry. Lufthansa Technik is licensed internationally as a repair, production, and development enterprise.
The Group's portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of services in the areas of maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification, and conversion, engines and components.
