Russia's Alrosa Airlines has contracted Lufthansa Technik to provide component support for its Boeing 737 fleet.

At the MAKS air show in Moscow, the Mirny-based carrier - which is part of the Alrosa Mining Group, Russia's largest diamond producer - signed a total support agreement covering four current-generation 737s.

The deal is effective immediately and includes equipment repairs and spare-part supply.

Alrosa is in the process of replacing its Tupolev Tu-154 fleet with 737s and will also add three Bombardier Q400s in the short term, says LHT.

The turboprops are not covered by the component support deal, however.
