Lufthansa Technik’s Special Aircraft Services unit is experiencing a continuation of the high demand for technical services for VIP, government and business aircraft even as international commercial airtraffic recovers.
Michael von Puttkamer, vice president Special Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik said, “Our Special Aircraft Services business was one of the few areas of Lufthansa Technik that was not affected by the massive pandemic-related impact on international aviation in recent years. The extensive technical support provided to VIP, government and business aircraft during the crisis period was a central pillar of the company’s economic recovery over the past twelve months. It is all the more important that the high level of demand continues in the coming years. Our current order situation is one of the best in the company’s history. We have therefore already taken various measures in recent months, such as adding more staff, to adjust our structures and processes so that we can handle all projects to the absolute satisfaction of our customers despite high capacity utilization.”Wieland Timm, head of sales VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik said, “In addition to our decades of experience and our well-known high quality standards, our extremely broad product portfolio is another reason for our customers to entrust themselves to us. No other provider in this particular business segment can offer such a range of services from a single source for both the entire Boeing and the entire Airbus family in the areas of cabin, airframe and engines. This is because we offer not only technical services but also comprehensive engineering and design capabilities, as our latest VIP cabin concept Explorer clearly demonstrates. Our international network and mobile maintenance services also help us to be as close to the customer as possible.”
Lufthansa Technik has been providing technical services to VIP and government customers for more than 60 years. Among other things, the company has already implemented more than 150 completions and major modifications.
