CAPE TOWN–Last week South Africa’s Comair selected Lufthansa Technik (LHT) as a service partner for its Boeing 737 MAX 8s, as opposed to long-time maintenance provider South African Airways (SAA). In terms of this new agreement, LHT will provide engineering, planning, line maintenance and component support including consumables and expendables supply for Comair’s future Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet. The carrier will take delivery of the first two of eight 737 Max 8 aircraft in January 2019.=
