Lufthansa Technik and DC Aviation Group sign cooperation agreement
Joint services in Dubai
Lufthansa Technik has concluded a cooperation agreement with DC Aviation Group, a leading operator of business jets in Europe. As part of the agreement signed on May 25, 2016, the two companies plan to offer their VIP customers a first-class package of services at Al Maktoum International Airport (Dubai World Central Airport). An experienced, highly qualified team of engineers and mechanics will ensure cost efficiency and quality that are "made in Germany". Just like Lufthansa Technik, DC Aviation Group is headquartered in Germany, in this case in Stuttgart.
The contract services will be provided in the hangars and VIP facilities of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim LLC, a joint venture of DC Aviation and the Al-Futtaim Group. They will consist of regular checks as well as maintenance services, including unplanned repairs for example in the case of an AOG (Aircraft on Ground). The portfolio also features services for aircraft cabins, including small modifications. Moreover, plans call for a mobile aircraft and cabin service to serve the region.
The offer is rounded off by extensive FBO services (fixed-base operator) for ground operations at the airport, such as fueling, catering for passengers and pilots, and transport services. A luxuriously equipped terminal with 1,300 square meters of space is available for this purpose. Around-the-clock facilities for entry procedures and customs clearance will ensure seamless support. A hangar extending over 5,700 square meters of floor space will accommodate business jets up to the size of an Airbus A320 or Boeing 737. Last but not least, aircraft management and business jet charters are among the services jointly offered by the cooperation partners.
