- Three-year leasing support for 29 aircraft
- Contract encompasses transition of 12 Boeing 737-800 and 17 Airbus 

China Airlines (CAL) has awarded Lufthansa Technik AG the contract 
for its Aircraft Transition Services. The Taiwan-based carrier and 
the world's leading MRO provider have recently signed a three-year 
contract covering the transition of 12 Boeing 737-800 and 17 Airbus 
A330 of China Airlines leased aircraft.

A total of 29 projects will take place in multiple locations across 
the Asia-Pacific region. With over 400 aircraft transition projects 
all over the world, Lufthansa Technik holds years of experience in 
this field. Lufthansa Technik's Aircraft Transition Services are 
designed to make this extensive and complex process easier and more 
comfortable for the operators. From the initial aircraft assessment 
and long-term lease asset management all the way to the lease return 
‒ the Aircraft Transition Services team supports in every stage
of the lease period. 

Jason Tsai, Vice President Engineering Division Operations of China 
Airlines, said: "The 29 aircraft come from 11 different leasing 
companies. That's why we need a reliable partner who knows the 
business best. From our experience, we know that Lufthansa Technik 
fullfills both criteria." 

For China Airlines it's not the first time collaborating with 
Lufthansa Technik, the cooperation has been existing for many years. 
In 2022 both companies extended their Total Component Support (TCS) 
contract another six years minimum.  

"We would like to thank China Airlines for their trust and look 
forward to further developing our partnership," stated Frank Martens,
Senior Director Sales and Customer Development, Digital Fleet 
Services at Lufthansa Technik. "One of the goals of our Aircraft 
Transition Services is to enable our customers to focus on the most 
important thing: the successful daily operation of their fleet. We 
are pleased that China Airlines has chosen us to provide this 
services for them."
