Lufthansa Technik Budapest
Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport
Base Maintenance of
Narrow Body Aircraft
Lufthansa Technik Budapest offers base maintenance services for the Boeing 737 Next Generation/MAX and for the A320 family of aircraft. The company is part of the international aircraft overhaul network. Around 450 highly skilled engineers and mechanics perform base maintenance checks on an average of 160 medium-range aircraft every year.
The 6,000 square feet double bay hangar has sufficient space for five aircraft to be overhauled and for minor work to be carried out on a further two aircraft in other 2 hangars ( one of them is an inflatable one ), 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. One aircraft can be painted in the hangar right after being overhauled. Thus, no extra towing to a paint shop before the work can commence, saving time and costs. An ultra-modern ventilation system ensures that no toxic substances escape into the air.
The Hungarian subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik has numerous workshops spread over a total of almost 2,800 square feet 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 including SATCOM installation for providing on board internet service. In 2009 Lufthansa Technik Budapest became Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved repair station. The range of services offered is continually expanding.
