Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen and Asiana Airlines signed a five-year
agreement for technical support on V2500 thrust reverser. Under the
terms of the agreement, Lufthansa Technik Shenzhen will support
Asiana Airlines in developing its in-house capabilities for the V2500
thrust reverser and other related components by providing technical
training, tools and equipment as well as on-site support.

world-class MRO service provider," said an Asiana representative on

for more than 25 years," said Gerald Steinhoff, Senior Vice President
Corporate Sales Asia Pacific at Lufthansa Technik. "We will offer our
customer full availability and fast access to capability
