Eastern Siberian carrier Alrosa Airlines has reached a component supplier agreement with Lufthansa Technik for a new fleet of Boeing
737NG (Next Generation) aircraft, according to a statement released by Lufthansa from the MAKS 2013 air show.
Alrosa partnered with Lufthansa as part of its fleet modernization initiative, as the airline is replacing its fleet of Tupolev 154s with modern Boeing
commercial passenger jets. In the short term, Alrosa also plans on introducing Bombardier Q400s into its commercial fleet.
Under the new agreement, Lufthansa will provide the complete component supply for the new fleet, and will also perform repairs and manage the provision of spare parts.
