- Engine Maintenance Services including Cyclean® engine wash, AOG 
support and C&E supply

National Airlines and Lufthansa Technik have signed an agreement to 
expand their cooperation in the field of Engine Maintenance Services 
(EMS). The contract includes the overhaul of a minimum of eleven 
CF6-80 engines over the next five years for the Boeing 747 fleet as 
well as additional services like Cyclean® engine wash, AOG Support 
and Consumables & Expendables Support for the Orlando based cargo 

Since April of this year, for example, Lufthansa Technik has already 
been carrying out the efficient on-wing Cyclean® engine wash 
procedure on National Airlines aircraft at several airports. In 
addition to the Aircraft on Ground (AOG) support in Europe, Asia and 
North America, Lufthansa Technik also supplies National Airlines with
consumables and expendables. For this, so-called engine change kits 
with hundreds of selected parts are put together and delivered as an 
individual whole package. As of now, Lufthansa Technik furthermore 
starts the Engine Maintenance Services as part of the agreement.

Jim Casbarro, Vice President of Technical Operations at National 
Airlines, said: "National Airlines is extremely pleased to announce 
our expanding cooperation with Lufthansa Technik. Through this 
cooperation, National now has access to Lufthansa's wealth of 
industry leading experience and knowledge to further assist in our 
growth and operational reliability. We look forward to many years of 
continuing partnership with Lufthansa Technik."

Georgios Ouzounidis, Vice President Corporate Sales Americas at 
Lufthansa Technik, added: "The start of our cooperation with National
Airlines was only a few months ago. We are even more delighted to see
this young partnership continuously growing and highly value our 
cooperation with National Airlines."
