Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services is to supply spare parts to Sukhoi Superjet 100 operators in the Americas.
As part of an expansion of its co-operation deal with Superjet International, Germany-based LTLS will add SSJ100 warehousing operations at Fort Lauderdale airport in Florida. It already distributes components for the regional jet from Frankfurt.
Fort Lauderdale was selected as a location due to its "close proximity to the launch customer", Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet, says LTLS.
Interjet has already taken delivery of the first of 20 SSJ100s it has on firm order. It also holds 10 options.
