South Africa’s Comair Limited and Lufthansa Technik have signed a comprehensive long-term Total Technical Support (TTS®) contract. In the frame of the new agreement, Lufthansa Technik will provide engineering, planning, line maintenance and component support including consumables and expendables supply for the customer’s future Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet. The services will commence in January 2019, when Comair, as part of its fleet renewal program, will take delivery of the first two of eight 737 MAX 8 aircraft on order. As part of the TTS®, Lufthansa Technik supports Comair with a Technical Operations Management (TOM), integrating all MRO activities contracted in the agreement into a comprehensive service package. In conjunction with a TTS® contract, TOM is a service package which enables operators to enjoy efficiency advantages resulting from synergies in service integration and reduced complexity for their fleets. Comair’s in-house engineering and fleet department will continue to oversee all maintenance, repair and overhaul services.
