Lufthansa Consulting supports Turkmenistan Airlines to access compliance to international air safety standards
Turkmenistan’s flag carrier pushes action to raise safety standards to meet EASA requirements
Turkmenistan’s national airline Turkmenistan Airlines has commissioned Lufthansa Consulting to help them to raise their performance in terms of the
Third Country Operators (TCO) EU Safety Authorizations for foreign air operators – EASA TCO. The airline recently experienced difficulties in satisfying
relevant EASA requirements and is taking matters in this regard very seriously. The Operator is aware of the need for immediate action and has therefore
decided to cooperate with the German aviation experts to review the existing situation and develop a corrective action plan.
Lufthansa Consulting has extensive experience and competence in the aviation industry, not least with the issues of flight safety. In this project, the
consultants will evaluate the current status within the airline towards EASA requirements. Furthermore, they will develop an overall customized and effective
action scheme in line with the analyzed EASA TCO requirements and findings.
Turkmenistan Airlines is the flag carrier of Turkmenistan, headquartered in the country’s capital Ashgabat. It operates domestic and international passenger
and cargo services mainly from its hub at Ashgabat International Airport. The airline transports more than 5,000 passengers daily within the country and
nearly three million passengers annually on the international and domestic routes together. The fleet consists of modern Western aircraft (such as Boeing 737, 757, 777)
and a cargo fleet of IL 76.
