Aircraft Overhauls in Eastern Europe
Lufthansa Technik Sofia (LTSF) is our joint venture with the Bulgarian Aviation Group (24.9%) specializing in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of narrowbody aircraft of the Airbus A320 family (Classic, Enhanced and Neo) and the Boeing 737 series (Classic and Next Generation).
About 1,100 highly qualified staff work in a site that extends over a total area of 25,000 square meters. The service spectrum reaches from line maintenance to IL-/D-Checks and includes a full range of additional services such as aircraft painting, special interior works and AOG support. Our modern facility can accommodate and service eight narrow-body aircraft for base maintenance simultaneously and one aircraft in a nose-in position for services such as cabin modifications. In addition, two of the bays have full paint capability. Extensive workshops allow Lufthansa Technik Sofia to perform all base maintenance related work in-house or in close cooperation with other facilities in the Lufthansa Technik Group.
Thanks to the geographic location of Lufthansa Technik Sofia on the south-eastern edge of Europe, the facility is well equipped to meet the future needs of the market in the region. On current forecasts, demand for maintenance services specifically for the Airbus A320 and the Boeing 737 is expected to rise steadily over the coming years. Not only are the existing fleets of the low-cost carriers of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa continuing to grow, but at the same time many East European airlines are upgrading their fleets to Western aircraft types.
