PIA selects Lufthansa Technik for engine maintenance

Pakistan International Airlines has contracted Lufthansa Technik to support the engines powering its Airbus A310 and ATR 42 fleets.

The German MRO specialist has won a three-year deal covering the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127 engines fitted to the Karachi-based carrier's six-strong ATR 42 turboprop fleet and a separate five-year deal spanning six A310s' Pratt & Whitney PW4000s.

The PW4000 contract covers repairs and overhauls, supply of spare engines, engineering services and logistics.

Meanwhile, a PW127 powerplant is already undergoing overhaul at LHT’s Aero Alzey regional engine shop near Frankfurt.

"This is the first long-term contract between Lufthansa Technik and PIA," says Ziad Al Hazmi, the maintenance provider’s general manager for the Middle East region.
