Liebherr-Aerospace supplies the landing gear system for the ARJ21 

HAECO and Liebherr-Aerospace are pleased to announce the expansion of their ARJ21 landing gear service offer in China. As the popularity of the ARJ21-700 Xiangfeng continues to grow in China, with 100 aircraft in operation and its first customer outside of China in Indonesia, HAECO and Liebherr-Aerospace are collaborating to meet the increased demand for landing gear maintenance services.

This unique partnership combines Liebherr-Aerospace's OEM expertise as the design and product responsible company for the COMAC ARJ21 landing gear system with HAECO Landing Gear Services, a well-established and mature MRO partner with vast experience in landing gear maintenance services. Located in Xiamen, HAECO will work with Liebherr-Aerospace's service centre in Shanghai to provide support to Chengdu Airlines, Genghis Khan Airlines, China Southern Airlines, One-Two-Three Airlines, Air China, Jiangxi Air, China Express Airlines, and TransNusa.

The success of this teaming approach between Liebherr-Aerospace as the OEM and HAECO as the maintenance partner has already been demonstrated by the high-quality services provided to the Embraer E-Jet E1 family fleet operated in China. With the expansion of Liebherr’s and HAECO’s service offer to ARJ21 operators, both partners aim to support the success of the COMAC ARJ21 programme in China and beyond. The landing gear service will also be available for the newly certified ARJ21F cargo version, which will be operated by YTO Cargo Airlines and Longhao Airlines.

To further optimise slot availability for all ARJ21-700 and ARJ21F operators, Liebherr-Aerospace plans to expand its landing gear service capacities with its manufacturing partner in China. This new MRO capability will add local capacity to the Chinese market and ensure that operators of the ARJ21 have access to exceptional as well as reliable landing gear maintenance services.
