Lufthansa Technik Malta to Work on Airbus A350-1000 Overhauls

: Aug 14, 2019 - : 7:47 pm

Lufthansa Technik Malta has received German Federal Aviation Office (LBA) approval to carry out all overhaul work on the Airbus A350-1000.

The recent certification amends the approval to perform overhaul work on the baseline A350-900, which was already received in 2018. Lufthansa Technik Malta is thus permitted to work on the stretched version of the twin-engine widebody. The necessary overhaul lines and docks were already adapted to the new subtype at the time of the earlier approval.

“With this approval, we have further cemented our leading position as the only Airbus widebody overhaul site in the European Lufthansa Technik network,” said Marcus Motschenbacher, Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Technik Malta. “We are therefore very well positioned to provide long-term technical support for the entire A350 range. This is a great success for the Lufthansa Technik Group.”

In 2018, more than 50 employees of Lufthansa Technik Malta attained the necessary qualifications and practical knowledge to work on the A350-900. These skills are now also being used to perform overhauls on the larger type. More than US$3 million have been invested in the preparation for overhauls of both types, with the first three customers expected before the end of the year.
