Mobile Engine Services (MES) has become a real success story for Lufthansa Technik AG. More and more customers are relying on smart repair solutions that can avoid or delay extensive engine overhauls and thus save costs. Lufthansa Technik’s revenue from MES services increased by more than a third in 2022 compared with the pre-crisis year of 2019. Accordingly, the global MES network consisting of five highly specialized sites to date, will be further expanded.

A new and much larger repair station opened on November 30 just outside Dublin. Lufthansa Technik’s Irish MES site is located in Celbridge and offers a 3,500 m² state-of-the-art facility with ten engine bays, providing twice the previous capacity. Currently, the facility has 30 highly qualified employees working on CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B engines, which are used on the Airbus A320ceo family and the Boeing 737 Next Generation respectively. If business continues to develop, there are plans to double the number of employees within the next two years.

MES customers include airlines, lessors and engine manufacturers. Depending on their needs and the requirements and complexity of the repairs, Lufthansa Technik’s Mobile Engine Services offer a wide range of surgical solutions either directly on-wing (InOperation), at the customer’s site (InField) or at one of the MES stations (InStation).
