German maintenance firm Lufthansa Technik and French counterpart Air France Industries are intending to co-operate in offering component and logistic support services to the Airbus A400M military transport.

The two sides have signed a memorandum of understanding to evaluate the possibility of providing a complete range of component services – including repair, overhaul, engineering and parts-pool management – to A400M operators.

Lufthansa Technik and Air France Industries last year tied up with a joint venture, known as Spairliners, to offer component support for the Airbus A380 aircraft. The companies state that a similar customised scheme will lower operating costs of the A400M.
