Jeddah, KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA – Saudi-Arabia’s new low fare airline flyadeal and Lufthansa Technik have signed a comprehensive aircraft engineering services contract. The contract will run over four years and covers the complete flyadeal A320 fleet.
One of the major components of the agreement is the set-up of a new maintenance control center. This will include a full Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) and aircraft engineering support from Lufthansa Technik. Lufthansa Technik will also organize trouble shooting and help flyadeal establish an optimized maintenance program by the new Maintenance Concept Management (MCM) which allows highly efficient operations due to an optimized maintenance schedule. flyadeal will also be one of Lufthansa Technik’s first customers for its digital condition analytics tool which is part of AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik’s open MRO IT platform for digital products and services.
CEO of flyadeal, Con Korfiatis said, “flyadeal was launched in late September to serve the rapidly expanding travel market in Saudi Arabia and more broadly in the region. We plan to grow the airline quickly and have put the pillars in place for a high quality operation adopting global best practice with the support of the world’s best partners. We are very pleased to partner with Lufthansa Technik, who share our vision and bring the highest standards to our maintenance organization.”
“We are very proud that flyadeal has selected us to accompany them on their growth path right from the beginning,” said Robert Gaag, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East, Africa from Lufthansa Technik. “We are sure that our offer will be able to fulfill the service and business model expectations of flyadeal. We are looking forward to cooperate with this new low cost carrier in the next years.”
