Liebherr-Aerospace, Nordic Regional Airlines (Norra) and Finnair signed a contract at the beginning of December 2016 which covers the overhaul of the main and nose landing gears system of the 12 Embraer 190 regional jets operated by Norra on behalf of Finnair.

The complete landing gear systems for the E-Jet E1 family 170/175/190/195 were developed and manufactured by the OEM Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), the center of excellence for landing gear and flight control systems within Liebherr-Aerospace’s global network.

Arne Ziessler, Head of Procurement at Finnair Technical Operations declared: “We are satisfied to be currently working in a close relationship with Liebherr in order to ensure the success of this overhaul campaign.”

Frank Steinmaier, Head of Sales & Marketing, EUMEA, Customer Services at Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH commented: “This new contract is a success for us as it reflects the trust our customers have in our experience and expertise that we have developed over the past five decades.”

The agreement will also further enhance Liebherr’s business relationship with Finnair, the flag carrier of Finland, whose headquarters are located at the Helsinki airport.
