Go Airlines (GoAir) and Lufthansa Technik have signed a 10-year component support contract, effective from August, 2012, for the carrier's present and future fleet of 20 A320 classic and 72 A320 neo aircraft. The contract covers most of the spare parts required for the regular maintenance of A320 classic aircraft and will also cover the new A320neo fleet of GoAir which is expected to enter into service from 2016 onwards. The component support will be handled via the Lufthansa Technik Group network.

Spare parts shall be supplied to the airline's bases at Mumbai and Delhi. The contract also provides GoAir access to Lufthansa Technik's manage/m technical operations WebSuite, whereby both parties shall observe just-in-time inventory management. This will enable further efficiency gains for both parties.

The maintenance and repairs of the components will be done at Lufthansa Technik facilities. GoAir shall be supported by a dedicated customer support team in addition to Lufthansa Technik's general 24/7 AOG Desk.

"Over the past years Lufthansa Technik has proven its ability to understand the dedicated needs of low cost carriers in the Asian region. Thus, we are sure that we have made the right choice to get the best possible technical support for our growth path in India," Giorgio De Roni, Chief Executive Officer of GoAir, said.
