SriLankan Airlines and Lufthansa Technik have signed a five-year component supply contract for the carrier's Airbus A320 fleet.

Lufthansa Technik said spare parts will be supplied to the airline's home base at Bandaranaike international airport in Colombo, where the main base stock of certain aircraft-on-ground (AOG) relevant components is also being kept.

Repair and pooling of the components will be done at Lufthansa's base in Hamburg, while customer support is located in Bangalore.

Within the framework of the total component support (TCS) contract, Lufthansa Technik's experts will take care of all aspects relating to daily component supplies for SriLankan, it added.
