BA shows confidence in A380 with maintenance extension


British Airways (BA) has extended its contract with Lufthansa Technik for base maintenance services for its Airbus A380 aircraft fleet. The contract will run from August 2022 for more than five years and includes services for the airline’s 12 A380s to be performed at the Lufthansa Technik Philippines facility in Manila.

During the past five years, British Airways and Lufthansa Technik have worked together on A380 base maintenance services, aligning their standards of safety and professionalism. The extended contract includes 12 year-checks for the A380s.

Lufthansa Technik Philippines will manage the aircraft via AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik’s digital operations suite, in order to track, coordinate and report on the checks. The digital platform provides real-time multi-user information access on the check status, including open items, next steps, completion level and many other functions.

Dave Exon, technical director of British Airways stated, “Safety is at the heart of everything we do and we’re delighted to extend our existing A380 base maintenance contract with Lufthansa Technik as a result of the continued excellent standard of service provided by Lufthansa Technik Philippines. This agreement ensures that our A380 aircraft have secured slots for the foreseeable future.”
