Annual Report 2018

Lufthansa Technik

A period of transformation

One glance over the apron at an airport is enough to see that, on the surface, aircraft hardly seem to have changed for decades. Nevertheless, the entire aviation industry is currently in a period of enormous technological and industrial transformation.

Strong Growth

The company grew more strongly than the market as a whole, with turnover rising by 10 percent to an all-time high and a slight increase in profit despite major investments and growing price pressure. The faith of our customers is unswerving, and Lufthansa Technik is now responsible for more than 5,000 aircraft. This means that we support one in five commercially operated aircraft on the planet. We have reinforced our leading position in the industry even further. 




Adjusted EBIT



Once again we have demonstrated our leadership as a provider of maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for aircraft, their components, and engines, as an outfitter of government and VIP aircraft, and as a manufacturer of cabin systems.

Mega-Trend Digitalization

Digitalization is affecting the entire aviation industry. Vast quantities of aircraft data, transferred in real time, combined with new analytical possibilities, are opening up completely new vistas for the industry in terms of predictive maintenance and fault analysis.

With AVIATAR, we offer the industry's only solution worldwide that combines digital analysis technologies with tangible implementation in the maintenance of aircraft and equipment. And the success proves the validity of our approach. We have established a foothold in every single major airline group in the world, anchor customers with whom we are working together to bring our business into the digital age. 

The company's success in 2018 is essentially the product of the know-how and the commitment of its employees. We thank them all for what they have achieved. And, of course, we thank our customers for the cooperation, partnership and for the trust they see in us.
