“Lufthansa Technik Switzerland is proud to have been selected by Eznis to provide repair and overhaul services to their Avro RJ 85’s engines for at least five years,” said, Sebastian Sattler, Key Account Manager of Lufthansa Technik Switzerland. “During the cooperation period, experienced maintenance staff from Lufthansa Technik will be assigned to Ulaanbaatar to ensure quality maintenance services from the very beginning as well as for a long-term knowledge transfer to Eznis.”
The addition of the Avro RJ85s to the Eznis Airways’ fleet will be one important component in the airline’s goal to become the No. 1 choice for regional air service in North Central Asia by connecting Mongolia to neighboring regions, as it will further develop the carrier’s network in terms of new destinations and increased frequencies.

We look forward to Lufthansa Technik - the leading provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services worldwide with extensive experience servicing the Avro RJ family aircraft - providing technical services that meet international standards for our Avro RJ 85, which is a new aircraft type for Mongolia.
