Anticipating regional jets sustained recovery in China, Liebherr and HAECO have extended their initial landing gear service agreement to offer state-of-the-art landing gear MRO services to Chinese Embraer E-Jet E1 operators.

While Chinese operators progressively resume to full flight operations, Liebherr-Aerospace has optimized its landing gear maintenance offer through a service agreement in China with HAECO Landing Gear Services.

This unique relationship combines Liebherr-Aerospace's OEM expertise as the design and production responsible company for the Embraer E-Jet E1 landing gear system with HAECO Landing Gear Services, an MRO partner with vast expertise on landing gear maintenance services and a facility in Xiamen, ideally located half way between Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Facing a stable MRO demand in the region, the OEM support to local operators who need to improve their supply chain performance became critical after aircraft grounding due to the pandemic. However, thanks to the successful cooperation of Liebherr with HAECO Landing Gear Services, the development of OEM slot capacity in China remains a distinct advantage when servicing events need to be rescheduled, and leads to cost-efficient and shorter turn-around time.

To further develop this success-story of two major players on the landing gear MRO service market, HAECO will widen their service offering and asset rotation also to Liebherr-Aerospace’s customers located in the region.
