Lufthansa Technik is establishing a new facility – Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) – in the Aviation District at Dubai South, in the United Arab Emirates, in addition to its existing site at Dubai International Airport. LTME will be the 32nd member of the global Lufthansa Technik Group network of companies. The new facility will consist of both workshops and offices. The company said it will enable independent and direct access to customers in the region.
Various technical services will be available at the site, including repairs to flaps, radomes, reversers and inlet cowls, as well as AOG support via a local material support desk. LTME will also offer materials, spare parts and engine wash services for commercial and VIP customers locally. Further evaluation of additional capabilities is ongoing.
“The Aviation District has emerged as the ideal venue for us to host our new facility,” said Ziad Al Hazmi, CEO of LTME. “It will put us in prime position as a leader in the aerospace supply chain sphere and help us enhance value for our growing list of customers by offering optimized technical services, including our Airframe Related Component portfolio which features aircraft MRO services – literally from nose to tail.”
