Lufthansa Technik and U.S. service provider eJet Services have agreed to expand their existing joint program of comprehensive maintenance and operating support for executive conversions of Bombardier CRJs. The program offers low-utilization and small-fleet operators nose-to-tail maintenance and operating support. The broadened relationship also includes comprehensive support for smaller scheduled airlines worldwide. Together, Lufthansa Technik and eJet Services will provide operators with a cost-per-flight-hour program for first-generation Bombardier CRJs that covers engines, avionics, rotables, landing gear, auxiliary power units, wheels and brakes. All key systems are covered, including electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic and environmental components. Lufthansa Technik will provide global maintenance, repair and overhaul capability and logistics, while eJet provides 24/7 maintenance control, parts tracking and record keeping, maintenance planning tools and a customized maintenance program for individual operators. Lufthansa Technik claims that operators can reduce inspection and heavy maintenance costs by up to 20 percent. “Now owners and operators of airliners operated as private VIP aircraft can enjoy the benefits of worldwide support and technical capabilities,” a spokesman said.
