The regional carrier of the Air France group operates, among others, a combined fleet of 25 CRJ700 and CRJ1000. This contract reaffirms HOP!’s confidence in Liebherr-Aerospace for maintenance services.

Pascal Lequemener, Chief Purchasing Officer, HOP! said: “We feel comfortable to work with an OEM such as Liebherr for our dense components maintenance activities. Liebherr has a high level of flexibility and understands what we expect as an operator”.

Thierry Gourmanel, Head of Sales & Marketing from Customer Services of Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS declared: “This is the materialization of a long historic relationship between our two companies. Liebherr-Aerospace offers tailored solutions, adapted to our customers’ fleet sizes and business requirements. The pay-by-the-hour concept generates efficiency and cost optimization. HOP! will benefit from our OEM expertise and know-how.”

The support services will be performed by Liebherr-Aerospace’s service stations in Lindenberg (Germany), center of excellence for landing gear and flight control/actuation systems as well as gears and gearboxes, and in Toulouse (France), where Liebherr’s center of excellence for air management systems is based.
