Lufthansa Airbus A380 D-AIMA Returns after Overhaul
Posted: 2016 Mar 10
The "Frankfurt am Main", Lufthansa's first Airbus A380, with tail sign D-AIMA, has returned to service after completing a major overhaul, the Intermediate Layover or "IL-check" at Lufthansa Technik Philippines. The overhaul work required a two-month layover and 90,000 working hours. The aircraft had completed 2,671 flights and 23,595 flight hours. "We have been preparing for this layover since the 2nd quarter of 2015," says Rainer Janke, Vice President for Marketing and Sales of Lufthansa Technik Philippines. "We were able to accumulate a wealth of experience in recent years with the A380 type, building up our heavy maintenance capability and performing major modifications."
The A380's IL-check saw approximately, 180 employees working on the aircraft and also resulted in the entire cabin being refurbished to look “as new”. A second Lufthansa A380 (D-AIMB) is also undergoing its IL-check at Manila and expected to be released for service in a few weeks. Lufthansa Technik Philippines is the center of excellence for Lufthansa Technik AG for overhauls of the Airbus A320, A330, A340, and A380 types. An additional aircraft type is now being added with the Boeing 777.
