Kenya Airways Signs Boeing 787 Support Deal with Lufthansa Technik


Kenya Airways and Lufthansa Technik AG have signed a long-term contract for the supply of aircraft components for the long-haul, Boeing 787-8 fleet.


The long-term contract will allow KQ to receive the proven Total Component Support (TCS) from the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) specialist until 2028. It will also give Kenya Airways access to Lufthansa Technik's worldwide parts pool which will enable Kenya Airways to significantly increase the availability of spare parts for the Dreamliner fleet in a cost-effective manner.


The contract covers the classic MRO and supply of components as well an AOG (Aircraft On Ground) support for various parts-pooling and logistics services. The close cooperation between the two companies will enable the airline to maximize efficiency in the technical operations and ensure the best possible availability of the spare parts needs. 


“Due to increased demand in air travel, Kenya Airways embarked on a journey of returning to service aircraft that were parked during the pandemic. This resulted in an increased demand for parts to make aircraft ready for flight.


There has been a worldwide shortage of some raw materials negatively affecting some aircraft parts availability,” said Allan Kilavuka, Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Kenya Airways. 


“Therefore, we are looking forward to working with Lufthansa Technik, to make us less dependent on the current global supply chain situation.” adds Mr Kilavuka.


On his part Kai-Stefan Roepke, Vice President Corporate Sales Europe, Middle East and Africa at Lufthansa Technik said, “With access to our worldwide network of material and parts pools, our valued customer will indeed be able to significantly mitigate uncertainties in the global aircraft parts supply chain.” 


“We look forward to supporting Kenya Airways in the best possible way through our Total Component Support. This applies to the post-pandemic ramp-up phase as well as to the coming years of our cooperation.” Adds Kai Stefan.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
