Posted 10 February 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates has contracted Lufthansa Technik to overhaul the landing gear of its Boeing 777-200ER/300 classic fleet. The five-year agreement covers 13 shipsets.

The formalisation of this contract reflects Emirates' long-standing relationship with Lufthansa Technik, which dates back to 2005. The work will be performed by Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear services UK (LTLGS) located in Hayes, London, in the United Kingdom. 

"In order to maintain the world's largest Boeing 777 fleet, Emirates expects the highest levels of reliability and quality from our suppliers. Lufthansa Technik continues to fulfil such expectations and bring a robust supply chain. In signing this agreement, we look forward to a continued partnership for years to come," said Adel AlRedha, Emirates' executive vice president and chief operations officer. 

Robert Gaag, Lufthansa Technik's senior vice president corporate sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: "Since we started working with Emirates in 2005 on the 777 landing gears, we have overhauled over 30 shipsets for Emirates. We are extremely proud of having met the standards set by Emirates and being able to fulfil their requirements and needs."
