LHT to maintain CFM56 engines for Mango

South African Airways' budget subsidiary Mango has selected Lufthansa Technik to overhaul the CFM International CFM56 engines powering Boeing 737NGs.

LHT says the exclusive hour-based support agreement covers "at least" 19 shop visits at the MRO provider's facilities in Germany until 2022.

Mango has a fleet of 10 737-800s, says LHT, which has on an exclusive basis serviced the CFM56-7B engines powering SAA's 737NG fleet for more than 15 years.

LHT notes that it has long-term maintenance agreements in place with "all the major airlines" in South Africa: SAA, Comair, and Safair, as well as the flag carrier's MRO arm SAA Technical.
