The fleet introduction of a new aircraft such as the 747-8 requires an integrator such as Lufthansa Technik to enable a worry-free operation from the first day of operations. Lufthansa Technik has maintained and overhauled 747 aircraft and their engines for almost 20 years, making it the natural partner for a successful market introduction of the newest Jumbo generation.
