TATA SIA Airlines Limited (Vistara) and Lufthansa Technik have signed
a twelve-year component support agreement for the Boeing 787 fleet to
be operated by Vistara. The Indian carrier has six firm orders and
four options for this aircraft type. The agreement covers a wide
range of aircraft components for the Boeing 787. Service provision
will start as early as the first quarter of 2020.  

Extensive technical capabilities and dedicated support

Sisira Kanta Dash, Senior Vice President Engineering, Vistara said:
"We are very pleased to partner with Lufthansa Technik to provide
component support for our new 787 fleet. We have been working with
Lufthansa Technik for the past three years on various projects and
are looking forward to further deepening this successful cooperation.
We are confident that Lufthansa Technik, with its extensive technical
capabilities, fast response time and dedicated support, will
optimally contribute to our 787 operations."

Strengthened partnership with Indian customer
"With our local customer service team, we have developed excellent
working relationships with this fast-growing carrier. The airline's
requests are always handled with the highest priority," comments Zang
Thio, Senior Director Corporate Sales Southeast Asia and Indian
subcontinent of Lufthansa Technik. "We are very proud that Vistara
has once again placed its trust in us and our services for its new
787 fleet."

Vistara, a joint venture of TATA group India and Singapore Airlines,
is India's premium full-service carrier and the only 5-star rated
airline in India. Lufthansa Technik already supports the Indian
airline with single component services, ad hoc composites repairs
(Airframe Related Components, ARC®), consumables supply and AOG
(Aircraft on Ground) support for the carrier's Airbus A320 and Boeing
737 fleets. The new contract also contributes to consolidating
Lufthansa Technik's role as market leader  for 787 component services
in Asia Pacific.
