Lufthansa Technik Budapest
Overhaul and maintenance of medium-range aircraft
Situated at Ferenc Liszt International Airport in Hungary, Lufthansa Technik Budapest offers overhaul and maintenance services for the Boeing 737 Classic and Next Generation and for the A320 family of aircraft. The company was set up in 2000 and is part of the international aircraft overhaul network. Lufthansa Technik Budapest was founded on the model of its Irish sister company, Lufthansa Technik Shannon. Around 350 highly skilled engineers and mechanics perform overhauls on an average of 30 medium-range aircraft every year.
State-of-the-art hangar with two docks
The 6,000 square meters hangar has sufficient space for two aircraft to be overhauled and for minor work to be carried out on a further two aircraft, all at the same time. In addition to maintenance services that include D-, -IL- and C-checks, Lufthansa Technik Budapest also offers paint stripping and painting services for aircraft. Two aircraft can be painted in the hangar right after being overhauled. This means that they do not have to be specially towed to a paintshop before the work can commence, saving time and costs. An ultra-modern ventilation system ensures that no toxic substances escape into the air.
The range of services offered is continually expanding
The Hungarian subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik has numerous workshops spread over a total of almost 2,800 m² of floor space. These include shops for non-destructive flaw-crack testing, cabin fitting work and flight control systems. The company, which is certified to EASA Part 145, also specializes in extensive repairs to the aircraft structure and in modifications. In 2009 Lufthansa Technik Budapest became Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved repair station. The range of services offered is continually expanding.
Lufthansa Technik Budapest is part of the international network of Lufthansa Technik for the overhaul of medium-range and long-range aircraft. Apart from Lufthansa Technik Budapest, these are: Hamburg, Berlin Schönefeld, Lufthansa Technik Maintenance International in Frankfurt, Lufthansa Technik Shannon in Ireland, the two subsidiaries in Malta and Sofia (Bulgaria), Lufthansa Technik Philippines; Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico, and Ameco Beijing in China. Within the network, Lufthansa Technik offers a wide range of overhaul services for Airbus and Boeing aircraft, from minor checks and modifications to the D check, which is the complete overhaul of a commercial aircraft.
