Lufthansa Technik now offers technical services for all relevant narrowbody engine types

Lufthansa Technik and CFM International (CFM) have concluded a LEAP-1B* CFM Branded Service Agreement (CBSA). Being effective since 1st January 2022, this CFM license enables Lufthansa Technik to offer the widest range of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for CFM LEAP-1B engines.

Lufthansa Technik is the first independent MRO-provider worldwide to sign a CBSA for the LEAP-1B, enabling the company to offer high-quality, cost-efficient services for LEAP-1B engines to international customers. The LEAP-1B engine powers the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, of which more than 4,700 have been ordered to date. It is expected that up to 15,000 aircraft of this type will be operated worldwide in the future. As a consequence, this new agreement significantly strengthens Lufthansa Technik's position as one of the worldwide leading technical suppliers for narrowbody engines. 

The CBSA includes extended licenses, access to repairs, and a strong technical cooperation. Under the terms of the agreement, Lufthansa Technik will continue to make use of its extensive knowhow of engine MRO and provide the full range of MRO services tailored specifically to customers' requirements and to the needs corresponding to the life cycle of the engine. The focus will be on developing new MRO services and optimizing the operating costs for the operators of the LEAP-1B engine. The services will range from engine overhaul and parts repair to on-wing support and engineering support. Lufthansa Technik is the only independent MRO provider worldwide that holds both a CBSA for the LEAP-1A** engine and for the LEAP-1B engine.

*LEAP engines are a product of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines.

**Lufthansa Technik is also an authorized LEAP-1A service provider licensed by CFM International.
