Lufthansa Technik Middle East new facility is fully operational at Dubai South
The new facility of Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) has become fully operational in the Aviation District at Dubai South. The new site has been officially inaugurated on Tuesday, May 16, 2017. Before, the new facility was successfully audited by the Federal Aviation Office of Germany and different customers from the region. In the last weeks, different parts have already been repaired on-site, e.g. thrust reversers, inlet cowls and radomes. As a result of joint discussions with customers LTME’s capabilities are being increased for further components. LTME currently offers Airframe Related Component (ARC) support, AOG (Aircraft-On-Ground) support, landing gear and engine and engine wash services and a local material support desk. The material pool has been extended and covers now parts and components for the Boeing 787, 777 and the Airbus A320 and A350. Further evaluation of additional capabilities is ongoing depending on other customer requirements. The current LTME site at Dubai International Airport will be kept operational.
