UTC Aerospace Systems and Lufthansa Technik sign agreement for maintenance, repair and overhaul of Airbus A350 XWB nacelle systems

UTC Aerospace Systems and Lufthansa Technik have signed a long-term agreement that will give operators of Airbus A350 XWB aircraft more options for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services of nacelle systems on the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines that power the twinjet. The agreement makes Lufthansa Technik the initial licensed service provider for performing nacelle MRO services on the A350 XWB nacelle system to the same level as UTC Aerospace Systems’ own global MRO facilities.

Under the agreement, UTC Aerospace Systems’ Aerostructures business will provide Lufthansa Technik with proprietary information including repair procedures, access to OEM tooling, technical publications, worldwide performance data and technical data required to perform A350 XWB MRO services. Lufthansa Technik will invest in a wide range of assets to support the repairs including the tooling necessary to carry out the repairs.

“The agreement will give A350 XWB operators more options for locations of their nacelle MRO services from high-quality, OEM or OEM-licensed repair stations,” said Marc Duvall, president of UTC Aerospace Systems’ Aerostructures business. “Additionally, it provides the operators confidence that A350 nacelle system MRO work performed by Lufthansa Technik will be made at the same high standard of quality and fast turnaround for which both companies are known.”
