BizJet International signs Airbus A319 CJ completion contract
Lufthansa Technik’s US-subsidiary has signed a completion contract for an
Airbus A319 Corporate Jet (CJ) with an undisclosed Asian customer. The project will
start at the beginning of 2012.
Walter Heerdt, senior vice president Marketing & Sales of Lufthansa Technik, said: “Asia has become one of
the most important commercial aviation markets worldwide over the past years. Since a while also the VIP-business accelerates significantly. I am convinced that this high end project will be an ambassador for Lufthansa Technik’s high quality services in this region and will certainly attract other
customers from Asia to entrust their VIP
projects to us. “
Kai Roepke, president and chief executive officer of BizJet International said:
“We are very proud that we have been selected by an Asian customer. This contract is a clear evidence that our business strategy is on the right track
and that we are able to compete successfully also on international markets
outside of the Americas.
The completion of this Airbus A319 CJ is another great opportunity for us
to extend our narrow body portfolio into the Asian region.”
