Lufthansa Technik has signed a two-year contract with an undisclosed VIP customer in Asia to provide comprehensive technical support for two ACJ319s, the Hamburg, Germany-based company announced yesterday at ABACE. The support contract extends from line maintenance to full provisioning with components and materials, including logistics, maintenance management and CAMO services.

The company will provide maintenance support out of its worldwide service network, which includes seven facilities in Asia Pacific. Services for components, wheels, brakes and other materials will be handled at the MRO’s facilities in Hamburg and Frankfurt.
