Spirit Airlines signs extended contract for thrust reverser overhaul 
- Maintenance, repair and overhaul support for V2500 thrust reversers
of Airbus A320 family aircraft 
Spirit Airlines, ultra-low cost carrier and one of the fastest 
growing airlines in the United States, and Lufthansa Technik AG have 
signed an exclusive four-year Airframe Related Components (ARC®) 
contract for 28 A320 family aircraft (A319, A320 and A321) and 
options for additional aircraft. Spirit Airlines fleet currently 
consists of 49 aircraft. 
Charles Rue, Vice President Supply Chain of Spirit Airlines, points 
out: "Lufthansa Technik was able to tailor its services exactly to 
Spirit's needs and requirements in order for us to continue our high 
utilization operation while also keeping costs at a minimum, which is
of most importance for a growing carrier such as Spirit Airlines. The
support agreement for the thrust reverser will extend our already 
existing business relationship." 
Robert Gaag, Director Sales USA and Canada from Lufthansa Technik, 
added: "The growing partnership with Spirit Airlines is of great 
value for both parties, and we are extremely proud that Spirit 
Airlines has once more showed us the trust and confidence to perform 
these critical services for them. With our global MRO network we are 
prepared to guarantee Spirit Airlines the high level of quality 
support they can expect from us." 
Lufthansa Technik will support Spirit Airlines at its main base of 
operations, Fort Lauderdale International Airport, in addition to its
thrust reverser facilities in Sun Valley, California, Hamburg, 
Germany, and Shenzhen, China. 
Starting in April 2013, a dedicated amount of thrust reverser spares 
in combination with a 24/7 customer service desk will ensure maximum 
fleet availability at minimum cost to Spirit Airlines. In addition to
the thrust reverser agreement, Lufthansa Technik also supports Spirit
Airlines with an exclusive Total Component Support TCS® contract, as 
well as an APU repair and overhaul agreement for the entire fleet.
