Russian carriers Red Wings and Smartavia have awarded maintenance deals to Lufthansa Technik.

The MRO provider says Red Wings has signed a six-year contract for the support of CFM International CFM56-5Bs and International Aero Engines V2500s powering a fleet of “currently” 12 Airbus A320-family jets.

Each of the 24 engines will undergo a shop visit within the contract period, adds LHT. Engine condition monitoring is also part of the deal, and LHT will maintain the aircraft’s landing gear.

Cirium fleets data shows that Red Wings has four A320s, nine A321s, and six Tupolev 204s, including five in storage. Two of the A321s are fitted with CFM56s; the rest of the Airbus narrowbodies are powered by V2500s.

Red Wings is already an LHT customer for component support services.

Smartavia – already an LHT customer – has meanwhile signed a long-term contract for component maintenance of its Boeing 737NG fleet.

The carrier, which rebranded from Nordavia in 2019, has six 737-800s, three 737-700s, and six 737-500s. Two of the Classics are listed as parked.
