At MRO Europe 2017, Lufthansa Technik AG and Wizz Air have announced
that the largest low-cost carrier of Central and Eastern Europe
partners with Lufthansa Technik's MRO platform AVIATAR for its future

for predictive maintenance solutions, condition monitoring and fault

Christian Ambiehl, Wizz Air's Head of Maintenance, said: "As one of
the most innovative low cost Airlines in Europe, WIZZ also has a
track record of economic success. Working with AVIATAR we are going

interconnecting our various data sources on a single screen. As a
long-term Lufthansa Technik customer, we appreciate their focus on
the technical and operational side of the airline business."

Christian Langer, Head of Digital Fleet Solutions at Lufthansa

become a strong player in Europe's airline market. The digital
journey of Wizz Air has just begun and we look forward to co-create
new apps and digital solutions for a physical business with one of
Central and Eastern Europe's leading low-cost carrier. This start-up
spirit combined with the skills and technical operations vision of
Wizz Air will help AVIATAR to become an even stronger partner for
operators in their digital transformation strategies. "

AVIATAR allows operators and other players in the MRO market to
collaborate on an open and neutral platform.
