AOG: Airline Support Teams

We come to wherever you are

We get you quickly airborne again

An AOG situation is a worst-case scenario for you, but we know how to handle it! No matter where the AOG occurs – just give us a call and we will send you help quickly! One of our Airline Support Teams, AST®, will be sent directly to the location of the affected aircraft for on-site repairs.

“Whatever technical problem arises, operators can count on the performance of our AST® teams – around the globe and around the clock.”

Paul Leidorf, AST® Manager

Our teams – experienced mechanics, engineers, material suppliers and inspectors – are working worldwide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In most AOG-cases you will need spare parts. No problem for us: we also maintain a substantial pool of spares for both non-routine exchanges and planned overhauls.  And logistics are handled by our subsidiary Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services which can deliver a spare whenever and wherever it is needed. In short: we do everything to put your aircraft back in the air – while keeping the budget down to earth.
In order to be able to tackle your specific problem in the most efficient way possible, we have specialized support teams focused on

  • Aircraft Maintenance
  • Engines
  • Nacelles & Composites
  • Landing Gears

Contact our Customer Support Center and you can go back to concentrating on your core business – flying!

Consulting and Assessment on-site

Good advice can save you money

Our AST® solutions also include consulting and assessment services on-site. To save you unnecessary overhaul expenditures, the next time you have your doubts about – for example – your aircraft's undercarriage or engine, you might consider calling our AST® on-wing support team first. These high-grade specialists can quickly determine whether the unit needs to be removed or whether the problems can be fixed on-site to help you avoid a costly overhaul.

Overhaul on-site

Overhaul at home

Beyond classic on-site repairs, our mobile AST® specialists also support you with overhauls – for example, of nacelles – in alignment with a major airframe check. It can be performed either at one of our base maintenance stations or right at your site. This approach eliminates transportation costs and lengthy turnaround times – and therefore offers significant savings.

Needless to say: any work on-site is done according to the standard of quality for which Lufthansa Technik is renowned.
