South Korean budget carrier Eastar Jet has extended its component maintenance agreement with Lufthansa Technik to its on-order Boeing 737 Max fleet.
Earlier this year, Eastar became a new customer for LHT, with a support deal covering components on 737NGs.
LHT says that Eastar “currently” has six Max aircraft on order, the first two of which are scheduled for delivery by year-end.
The remaining four aircraft will follow in mid-2019, the German MRO group adds.
Under the deal, LHT provides component maintenance, pool access, and leased spare components to the airline’s base at Seoul’s Gimpo International airport.
Flight Fleets Analyzer records the airline as operating 18 737NGs.
