Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) recently received its first GE90 engine inlet cowl, from Etihad Airways, marking the commencement of repair work at LTME's new facility in the Dubai South Aviation District.
"We are happy to welcome Lufthansa Technik, a leading global player in the aerospace industry, as the first company to begin operations at the newly opened Aerospace Supply Chain,” said Ahmed Al Ansari, Acting CEO, Dubai South.
He added, “The unique, first-of-its kind facility is designed to offer companies, in the MRO and aerospace industry, a multi-advantage edge given our strategic location and the synergistic aviation ecosystem that we are building at Dubai South."
“The arrival of the GE90 inlet cowl from such a well-known customer such as Etihad demonstrates that our decision to invest here has been right. I am sure, that our growing list of technical services, including our Airframe Related Component (ARC) portfolio, AOG (Aircraft-On-Ground) support, landing gear and engine services and our local material support desk will also convince other customers to trust in our technical expertise,” said Ziad Al Hazmi, CEO Lufthansa Technik Middle East.
The new facility also offers material and spares and engine wash services for commercial and VIP customers locally.
