How you can send invoices to
We offer three billing options. Sending your invoice/credit note via different channels (e.g. SPEC2000 & paper) should not occur as this leads to additional work and additional need for clarification.
Various electronic options are available such as SPEC2000, Aeroexchange, and IATA SIS. Electronic invoicing via SPEC2000 / Aeroexchange offers the advantage of fast processing and low clarification requirements due to the standardization and the (EDI) interface.
Please ask your direct contact person if you are interested and require further information.
Please send PDF invoices and their attachments to our dedicated e-mail inbox: LHT.LHTechnik@Invoice.Lufthansagroup.com.
Please note that to send PDF invoices, your invoices must meet certain requirements, e.g. it must be a text-PDF (not a scan). Please do not send any other documents (e.g. account statements, reminders, balance confirmations etc.) to this e-mail address.
All information/requirements about PDF invoices are summarized in the following information sheet:

Hard Copy (Paper) Invoicing
Since invoicing by e-mail (PDF) usually allows faster processing and increases in traceability than sending hard copies as well as no additional costs for you, LHT prefers to receive invoices by e-mail (or by "electronic invoicing") instead of hard copies. If sending via e-mail/electronically is not possible (e.g. technical requirements cannot be met), please send hard copy invoices via mail to the following address:
Lufthansa Technik AG
