SAS Scandinavian Airlines has prematurely extended its existing
component support contract with Lufthansa Technik AG and added
further services. Under the new agreement running until December
2026, Lufthansa Technik will provide an integrated material supply
(Total Component Support, TCS®) for the airline's entire Boeing and
Airbus fleet, including the carrier's new A350s. In addition,
Lufthansa Technik will provide Airframe Related Components (ARC®)
services for the Boeing and Airbus fleets including LEAP-1A nacelle

"We are pleased to further expand our already close partnership with
Lufthansa Technik and to include also the new Airbus A350," says Marc
Weber, Vice President SAS Technical Operations. "Based on our
excellent and trusted relations, I believe that early extending and
enlarging this successful cooperation will allow us to benefit even
more from Lufthansa Technik's technical expertise, competence and
capabilities. Especially in view of the extensive renewal of our
fleet, we continue to fully trust in this support."

Robert Gaag, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East and
Africa of Lufthansa Technik, comments: "We are proud and delighted
that the leading Scandinavian airline has not only renewed its
current contract ahead of schedule, but has also put the material
supply of its entire Airbus fleet in our hands. This is not only a
sign of trust in our services from SAS but also another strong
indication of the investment and dedication that Lufthansa Technik
has put into delivering market-leading A350 services."

Under the Total Component Support (TCS®) contract, Lufthansa Technik
supplies spare parts to the airline's Scandinavian hubs. Lufthansa
Technik is also responsible for base maintenance of the carrier's
A330 and A340 long-haul aircraft as well as for the maintenance and
repair of composites structures (Airframe Related Components, ARC®).
Here, the contract expansion also covers nacelle support for the SAS
fleet's A320neo aircraft powered by LEAP-1A engines. Additionally,
the agreement entails A350 wheels and brakes services.

The first of eight Airbus A350s on order has just recently entered
the SAS fleet. As part of the modernization of the short and
long-haul fleet, SAS will take delivery of new Airbus A320neo (80),
Airbus A330 Enhanced (5), Airbus A350 (8) and Airbus A321LR (3)
aircraft before the end of 2023.
