Extended Total Component Support (TCS®) for growing fleet
Pooling through warehouses in Hong Kong and Singapore
SriLankan Airlines and Lufthansa Technik AG have extended their
existing component support contract for the growing Airbus A320 fleet
of Sri Lanka's national carrier. The expanded Total Component Support
(TCS®) agreement comprises all aircraft of SriLankan Airlines'
growing A320 fleet, including its new A320neo aircraft.
Lufthansa Technik will take care of all aspects relating to daily
component supply for SriLankan Airlines. The components will be
repaired and overhauled at Lufthansa Technik's global network of
repair facilities. Pooling will be provided through Hong Kong and
Singapore, where Lufthansa Technik operates two warehouses for the
Asia Pacific region.
SriLankan Airlines first placed its trust in Lufthansa Technik's
component support in 2012. Currently, the carrier's A320 fleet
consists of nine A320 and six A320neo aircraft.
Dinnaga Padmaperuma, Chief Technology Officer of SriLankan Airlines,
said: "We are glad to extend our components contract with Lufthansa
Technik and we hope that this collaboration will further enhance
Lufthansa Technik's commitment on regional support of our A320

appreciation to SriLankan Airlines for the continued trust in our
component services. We are fully committed to contributing to the
company's successful A320 fleet growth."
