5 year non-exclusive contract is covering a total of 17 B767-300 and

stable workload for the CF6 product line over the next years.

preferred MRO partner again," said Hoon Bae, General Manager of
Aircraft & Supplies Purchasing at Asiana Airlines. "With the seamless
support and services that have been delivered, we are very confident
that Lufthansa Technik will always do their very best to keep us
