LHT Wins Air India 777 Landing Gear Support Deal
Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has entered into an agreement with Air India for landing gear maintenance and repair work on the flag carrier’s fleet of Boeing 777-200 and -300 aircraft.
The four-year contract covers approximately 15 shipsets. It will be carried out by LHT’s UK-based subsidiary, Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK (LTLGS), headquartered in West London.
The first 777 landing gear delivery to Air India will also reach the milestone of being the 50th Boeing 777-200/300 landing gear overhaul by LTLGS since 2013, a figure that the MRO said amounts to a market share of approximately 70 per cent in the currently anticipated global market.
The Air India agreement adds to LTLGS’s customer base which includes Boeing 777 operators from Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
