LOT Polish Airlines has selected Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), to overhaul the main and nose landing gear systems of their Embraer E-Jet E1 fleet, which comprises E170 and E175 aircraft. The contract was signed at Farnborough International Airshow on July 16, 2014. In addition to MRO services, it includes an integrated support solution, which covers spare parts and engineering services and enables partial risk-sharing between Liebherr-Aerospace and LOT.
LOT, the launch customer of the Embraer E-170 aircraft, has the first scheduled E-Jet landing gear overhauls in Europe. Following the successful overhaul campaign Liebherr perfomed for LOT’s ERJ 145 aircraft, and based on Liebherr’s experience, support package and the companies’ existing business relationship, LOT has again chosen Liebherr now. The new contract is a success for Liebherr-Aerospace’s customer services, and will further enhance its business relationship with LOT. Poland’s largest airline is headquartered in Warsaw and currently operates 30 Embraer aircraft.
