Pan Pacific Airlines signs Total Component Support contract with Lufthansa Technik
Philippine carrier Pan Pacific Airlines has commissioned Lufthansa Technik to repair and overhaul the components of its A320 fleet via a six-year Total Component Support (TCS®) contract, effective November 1. The contract also covers pooling and spare part leasing at Pan Pacific’s headquarters, as well as a delivery guarantee on more than 100,000 components offered by TCS®.
"We are delighted to have signed up with a brand name like Lufthansa Technik, the market leader for A320 components,” said Patrick Dee, Vice President at Pan Pacific Airlines, in a November 1 statement. “The comprehensive component pooling arrangements, as well as Lufthansa Technik's regional pools in Hong Kong and Singapore, ensure that our operations are well-supported as we look to further expand our network."
Zang Thio, Lufthansa Technik Senior Director Sales South-East Asia and Indian Subcontinent, added: "We are honored to have expanded our customer portfolio in the region with Pan Pacific Airlines. This strengthens our market position on the Airbus A320 further as we continue to align our support model to the demands of this rapidly growing region."
This exclusive agreement was signed during MRO Asia-Pacific, adding Pan Pacific to Lufthansa’s expanding client list of Asian airlines. The MRO organization has recently shown strong support for the Asian market with a new Hong Kong component supply location and the creation of Lufthansa Technik Component Services Asia Pacific.
