Lufthansa Technik, Air Transat sign on Cyclean engine wash
Lufthansa Technik and a Canadian carrier Air Transat have signed on the Cyclean engine wash product. As of November 2016, the entire Air Transat fleet of aircraft, consisting of Airbus A310s with CF6-80C2 engines, A330s with Trent 700 engines, and Boeing 737NGs with CFM56-7 engines are using service from Lufthansa Technik‘s Cyclean.
The service is carried out at Montréal Airport in Canada, where Lufthansa Technik has been operating a Cyclean Service Station for a year now.
Jean-François Lemay, President Air Transat, stated: "We are thrilled to have concluded this comprehensive engine cleaning contract for our fleet with Lufthansa Technik. Not only will this enable us to reduce fuel consumption and emissions; it will also significantly reduce the maintenance costs for our engines."
Oliver Winter, Head of Engine Life Cycle Services at Lufthansa Technik, commented: "A Cyclean engine wash can be carried out as part of maintenance work, in the transit period between two flights, or overnight."
Lufthansa Technik, a subsidiary of Lufthansa Group, is a provider of MRO and modification services for civil aircraft. The company now operates seven business units covering maintenance, overhaul, component services, engine services, VIP services, landing gear services and original equipment innovation.
