A news* I missed a few days ago is the signature of the cooperation agreement between Lufthansa Technik of Hamburg, Germany and Avianor of Mirabel, Quebec near Montreal.
Interesting it is. As you know from my many CSeries production update papers on Fliegerfaust.com, for a while now Avianor is doing some CSeries interior installation at their Mirabel hangar where Bombardier is contracting not unionized resources to deliver more completed aircraft, and not having to expand the too small Mirabel Bombardier CSeries site that was never built as per the original plan.
For example, Avianor is currently advancing Korean Air CS300 MSN 55035 that just got swapped in exchange of 55031 that was there earlier last week.
As you know, Lufthansa is also the owner of SWISS among other airlines. SWISS is very picky about the quality of its interior and giving a hard time to Bombardier for its CSeries interior completion, which is an excellent thing, if you ask me, an excellent way to improve to perfection the production line.
But, did it really improve to the level to make SWISS really happy?
Could we see in a not too far future Airbus CSeries aircraft having some of its interior completion done under the management of Lufthansa Technik? In Mirabel, Quebec? Avianor? In Hamburg, Germany? Lufthansa Technik?
Oh, did I mention that Avianor just announced the purchase of another facility at Mirabel airport? Read here
Stay tuned because I have more about this subject in the next few days, you will be surprised!

Avianor Inc. and Lufthansa Technik A.G. of Hamburg, Germany are pleased to announce the signing of a Cooperation agreement. The agreement provides Avianor with access to Lufthansa Technik's Base Maintenance modular services in the areas of Planning, Engineering, Materials, Logistics and Benchmark performance data.

With these resources at its disposal, Avianor can accelerate its growth, increase customer service and quality and offer clients world class back office support.
"This agreement allows our relatively small MRO to compete more equally with the larger players in our industry," said Earl Diamond, CEO of Avianor. "Being a subscriber to Lufthansa Technik's modular services, Avianor took the first step to be part of Lufthansa Technik's global network".
"We are pleased to welcome Avianor as Cooperation partner to foster the strategic development for modular services of Lufthansa Technik's Base Maintenance network," said Thomas Rueckert, Vice President Base Maintenance Services at Lufthansa Technik. Over the next six months, the roll out of these new services will be completed.
Further developments of already identified potential in other fields of collaboration are planned to widen the range of cooperation in the future. Source: https://www.lufthansa-technik.com/press-releases-c...
