Virgin Atlantic Airways has become Lufthansa Technik’s launching customer for base maintenance checks on the Boeing 787 aircraft type.

At its Irish overhaul facility, Lufthansa Technik Shannon, the last in a series of six contracted 787 airplanes, was recently re-delivered to the airline. The scope of work for each aircraft included a C1-Check, plus several modifications and additional repair work. Worldwide, Lufthansa Technik currently has more than 200 Boeing 787s from 15 customers under exclusive contract.

The MRO provider has established a portfolio of globally available products and services to provide a comprehensive technical support for all commercial and VIP 787 operators and for all phases of the Dreamliner’s life cycle. Besides line and heavy airframe maintenance, this includes integrated material support and composite repairs as well as landing gear services, an Aircraft Production Inspection Program and access to Lufthansa Technik’s digital fleet solutions.
