Germanwings continues to rely on Lufthansa Technik‘s Cyclean® Engine Wash system: the contract between MRO specialist and airline has recently been extended. The engine washes for the Airbus A319 fleet of Germanwings will be carried out at the Cyclean® service stations in Stuttgart, Cologne, Hanover and Berlin. The fleet currently comprises 31 aircraft, with a further seven airplanes due to be added within the next two years.

Germanwings’ V2500 and CFM56-5B engines will be washed twice a year, in spring and autumn. This washing cycle has proved optimal for the airline in the past, based on the flight routes and ground times. Thanks to regular engine washes with Cyclean®, the airline has cut its fuel consumption by up to 0.5 per cent on average.
Lufthansa Technik offers Cyclean® for 13 engine types from different manufacturers. The number of Cyclean® service stations is growing steadily, with six new stations due to be added this year in Europe, the Middle East, North and South America. Cyclean® washes will thus be carried out for 35 customers at 24 stations around the world.
Cyclean® Engine Wash is the only method on the market that enables an engine wash to be carried out in just one hour. This enormous time-saving coupled with the fuel savings and reduced maintenance costs make Cyclean®attractive to network carriers, budget, regional and cargo airlines alike.
