Luxair Signs Avionics Support Agreement With Thales
Luxemburg carrier Luxair has signed a seven-year avionics by the hour (ABTH) agreement with Thales to provide spares provisioning and component maintenance services for its fleet of Bombardier Dash8-400 aircraft.
The agreement comes following Luxair’s purchase of four Q400NGs to replace three Q400 Legacy aircraft, and will provide advance exchanges and access to a pool of avionics components based in France.
“Being an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), and the avionics system integrator on the Dash8-Q400, gave us an edge to provide superior component support solutions that meet the cost, flexibility and performance demanded by airlines in today’s challenging aviation market,” said Claude Fries, head of commercial and logistics at Luxair.
