The new facility of Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) has become fully operational in the Aviation District at Dubai South.
Prior to the official inauguration of the new facility, it was successfully audited by the Federal Aviation Office of Germany and different customers from the region.
‘The official inauguration of our new site is a major milestone within our business strategy for this important region. Over the past weeks, we have received high interest regarding our new capabilities from different commercial aircraft operators based in the Middle East. It makes us very proud to be the first company to run operations at the Aerospace Supply Chain in the Dubai South Aviation District,’ said Ziad Al Hazmi, CEO Lufthansa Technik Middle East.
Repairs of parts at the facility have already commenced on-site, e.g. thrust reversers, inlet cowls and radomes.
LTME's capabilities are already being increased for further components and it presently offers Airframe Related Component (ARC) support, AOG (Aircraft-On-Ground) support, landing gear and engine and engine wash services and a local material support desk.
The material pool now covers parts and components for the Boeing 787, 777 and the Airbus A320 and A350.
The current LTME site at Dubai International Airport will be kept operational.
