Five-year Total Component Support (TCS) for the entire Dreamliner

Kenya Airways Ltd. and Lufthansa Technik AG recently signed a
long-term contract regarding the supply of aircraft components for
the Kenyan flag carrier's long-haul fleet. As a result, Kenya
Airways' total of nine Boeing 787-8s will receive the proven Total
Component Support (TCS) from the maintenance, repair and overhaul
(MRO) specialist until 2028. Access to Lufthansa Technik's worldwide
parts pool will enable the Nairobi-based airline to significantly
increase the availability of spare parts for its Dreamliners, and to
do so in a very cost-effective manner.

The contract, for which Lufthansa Technik had to undergo a rigorous
bidding process, covers not only the classic MRO and supply of
components but also an AOG (Aircraft On Ground) support, various
parts-pooling and logistics services. The close cooperation between
the two companies will enable the airline to maximize efficiency in
its technical operations and ensure the best possible availability of
the spare parts it needs. The first services already began in May.

"Due to increased demand in air travel, Kenya Airways embarked on a
journey of returning to service aircraft that were parked during the
pandemic. This resulted in an increased demand of parts to make the
aircraft ready for flight. There has been a worldwide shortage of
some raw materials negatively affecting availability of some aircraft
parts," says Allan Kilavuka, Group Managing Director and Chief
Executive Officer of Kenya Airways. "Therefore, we are looking
forward to working with Lufthansa Technik, which will make us less
dependent on the current global supply chain situation."

"With access to our worldwide network of material and parts pools,
our valued customer will indeed be able to significantly mitigate
uncertainties in the global aircraft parts supply chain," says
Kai-Stefan Roepke, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East
and Africa at Lufthansa Technik. "We look forward to supporting Kenya
Airways in the best possible way through our Total Component Support.
This applies to the post-pandemic ramp-up phase as well as to the
coming years of our cooperation."
