Lufthansa Technik AG and Mango Airlines from South Africa have signed an exclusive contract for the maintenance of CFM56-7B engines, which power the airline's fleet of ten Boeing 737NG aircraft.

Within the framework of the agreement, Lufthansa Technik will provide overhaul services for the engines at its German locations until 2022.

Mango Airlines' parent company, South African Airways, has been receiving exclusive support from Lufthansa Technik for the CFM56-7B engines of its Boeing 737NG fleet for more than 15 years already.

This new agreement now comprises at least 19 overhaul events over the next five years, with billing on a power-by-the-hour basis.

"We are very pleased to expand our footprint in South Africa by adding Mango Airlines to our customers," said Robert Gaag, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East & Africa at Lufthansa Technik. "Lufthansa Technik has a long lasting presence in thisregion and this agreement is a further proof that our services can betailor-made to the different needs of this market."

The newly signed contract with Mango Airlines means that Lufthansa Technik is adding another South African customer to its base and now has long-term maintenance contracts with all major airlines in the country. Besides South African Airways (SAA) and SAA-Technical, its customers also include the airlines Comair and Safair.
