Total Technical Support TTS® for new Airbus widebody aircraft
RwandAir and Lufthansa Technik signed an agreement about the comprehensive technical support of the Airbus A330 fleet of the African carrier. Delivery of the two brand-new A330s, the first widebody aircraft for RwandAir, is scheduled for September.
In the framework of a Total Technical Support TTS® contract Lufthansa Technik will perform aircraft maintenance services, engineering support and ensure a reliable component supply. Lufthansa Technik already provides the CRJ fleet of RwandAir with components. The new contract further extends the partnership between the two companies.
With this agreement, Lufthansa Technik strengthens its presence in the African market.
Lufthansa operates a fleet of 17 A330s (300 version) powered by Trent 772 engines, that will powered RwandAir A330s. Lufthansa has also a strong presence in the Rwanda Aviation Sector. Rwanda Governement has hired Lufthansa Consulting to help RwandAir to grow. Several ex Lufthansa executives were member of the RwandAir board (Rene Janata and Bert van der Stege).
First ever aircraft bought by RwandAir in 2009, were two ex Lufthansa CityLine CRJ-200s
Lufthansa Consulting has also made the second new feasabilty study about the New Bugesera Airport (HERE). Lufthansa can sell tickets between Brussels and Kigali and Addis Ababa and Kigali, thanks to code shares agreements with Brussels Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines. Frankfurt is often cited by RwandAir as a potential destination in Europe.
