21 CFM56-5B engines under  five-year contract
Overhauls and Mobile Engine Services included

Ultra low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines chooses Lufthansa Technik
to repair and overhaul 21 CFM56-5B engines as well as to supply
Mobile Engine Services. In the next five years Lufthansa Technik will
perform overhauls and surgical repairs on the engines which fly under
Frontier's fleet of 112 Airbus A320 family aircraft. Lufthansa
Technik in Hamburg, Germany, will overhaul the engines, whereas
surgical repairs can be done locally at Lufthansa Technik's facility
in Tulsa, Oklahoma. To this end, major investments were made at the
Tulsa engine shop: New tooling was acquired, mechanics were trained
and the existing test cell was upgraded to cover CFM56-5B testing.
The team in Tulsa will also perform Mobile Engine Services for
repairs necessary between overhauls, aiming to significantly reduce
operational downtime and avoid unnecessary shop visits. Depending on
the requirements of the individual repair solution, the available
options range from on-wing and in-field services to more complex
repairs performed at the shop in Tulsa.

"Lufthansa Technik is an important and long-standing partner for us,
which makes us confident that they will meet our high expectations
regarding engine maintenance, flexibility, and price," said Trevor
Stedke, senior vice president of operations, Frontier Airlines.  

Dietmar Focke, vice president engines, Lufthansa Technik, added: "We
are extremely happy that we were able to win the trust of Frontier.
Engines are the most valuable asset of an aircraft. We look forward
to growìng our partnership and support Frontier's growth, as one of
the most successful airlines in the American market, with a focus on
providing affordable air travel throughout the U.S. and beyond. We
will fulfill the trust placed in us and prove that we can provide
high-quality and reliable services at a reasonable price."
