European low-cost carrier Wizz Air is extending its partnership with Lufthansa Technik and adding additional services. The airline has extended two existing contracts for technical support of its Airbus A320 family and its future A321neo fleet by Lufthansa Technik. Apart from the integrated component supply the agreement also covers aircraft overhaul. The introduction of Cyclean engine washes has now also been agreed for the Wizz Air fleet.
The component support for the rapidly growing Wizz Air fleet, with its 72 A320 and A321 aircraft types at present, includes the repair and overhaul of components as well as pool services and logistics. The material is supplied by Lufthansa Technik from Frankfurt to Katowice in Poland and distributed by Wizz Air to the airline’s individual bases. In addition to the current and still expanding fleet, the contract also covers the 110 aircraft of the Airbus A321neo type that have been ordered and are due to be delivered to Wizz Air starting in 2019. The services are agreed up to 2022.
