Airbus SAS and Lufthansa Technik have renewed their existing cooperation by signing a new support contract for the Airbus fleet of five A300-600ST Belugas. The first component supply contract for the Beluga fleet was signed in 1995. The new agreement is in effect until 2025. According to Airbus, the extension of the existing component supply contract reflects the increased utilization of the A300-600 ST fleet related to the A350 XWB production ramp-up.

“The latest extension of the long-lasting component supply contract for the Airbus A300-600ST fleet confirms Lufthansa Technik’s strong commitment to support the Airbus Transporter in the long term. We will contribute our part to Airbus’s plans to use the Beluga fleet more intensively in the future,” said Wolfgang Weynell, vice president of marketing and sales at Lufthansa Technik.
