Lufthansa Technik continues training of Air Berlin Technik's trainees

Transfer of trainees as of 1 January 2018

The Christmas season brings good news: Effective 1 January 2018, Lufthansa Technik AG will be the new training organization for approximately a dozen young people who are currently in training programs at Air Berlin Technik. As a consequence, all of Air Berlin's aircraft mechanic and avionic trainees who began their training in 2015, 2016 or 2017 will have the opportunity to conclude their training programs in their desired professions.

Lufthansa Technik and the United Services Trade Union ver.di came to this agreement after the new owner of Air Berlin Technik announced that it was not continuing the company's training programs. With these new trainees, the total number of people in traditional or dual-study training programs with the Lufthansa Technik Group in Germany will rise to just under 600.

Lufthansa Technik and Lufthansa Technical Training are currently working on the contracts and training contents needed for taking over the trainees in Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, and look forward to working with them in the new year.
