Lufthansa Technik Middle East
Aircraft maintenance and material supply for the Middle East
Lufthansa Technik has a new wholly owned subsidiary: Lufthansa Technik Middle East. Based at Dubai Airport, the company commenced operations on 1 February, 2016. The company was formed on the basis of the service center, Lufthansa Technik Middle East Services (LTMES). With comprehensive on-site sales activities and technical services for customers, the company's operations strengthen the presence of Lufthansa Technik in the consistently growing Middle East aviation market.
Alongside comprehensive component supply and the repair of structural and composite materials, airline and VIP customers also benefit from maintenance operations on all short and medium-haul Airbus and Boeing aircraft as well as the Cyclean® Engine Wash service. The engine wash service is thus available at all three major airports in Dubai – Dubai International Airport, Dubai World Central, and Sharjah – to cater for customers from throughout the entire Gulf region.
Repair operations on Airframe Related Components® (ARC®) were expanded at the start of 2014 in response to the strong growth in demand for technical services for nacelle components. The competencies and extensive experience of Lufthansa Technik Middle East encompass the complete range requirements for operators of modern commercial aircraft. Furthermore, the company maintains close relationships with all relevant manufacturers. The ARC® workshop in Dubai extends the Lufthansa Technik global network, providing adhesive repairs on composites and light metals. As well as smaller repairs, an ARC® pool provides access to the complete range of spare parts for CFM56-5B and GE90 engines.
Lufthansa Technik Middle East in Dubai is also the central location for the AOG Help Desk and the base for the mobile Airline Support Team, assisting with rapid and comprehensive material and spare parts supply for unplanned incidents around the clock. Here, too, customers reap the benefits of Lufthansa Technik's state-of-the-art infrastructure and experienced, highly qualified personnel. Depending on the nature of damage, repairs can be arranged and undertaken directly and efficiently at the customer site or, without additional transport costs, in Dubai or elsewhere in the tightly integrated Lufthansa Technik network.
