This year, Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey (LTAA) has two occasions to celebrate: The wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG now counts 30 years of experience in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of CF34 engines – a type that mainly powers regional and business aircraft. In 1992, the first overhauled CF34-3 engines were redelivered in Alzey, the first engine type of the later CF34 series. The engine type has since then developed into a stable backbone in the service portfolio of the company:  The CF34-8 was introduced in 2002, and the CF34-10 in 2011.

As one of the world's leading providers of repair and overhaul services for this type of engine, the company has been complementing the network of engine manufacturer General Electric for 30 years. During this time, the employees of LTAA have managed close to 2,000 shop events and more than 200 customers.

Cristina Seda-Hoelle, General Manager, Regional and Business Aviation for GE Aviation, said: "Congratulations to LTAA on 30 years of supporting the CF34 program. Our commitment remains strong in the continued investment of the CF34 engine line to keep supporting our customers in the regional and business aviation space. LTAA's technical capabilities and proven support fit well with GE's mission to provide superior engine service."

In addition, LTAA`s employees can look forward to the expansion of their facilities: Due to the further growing demand, the construction of a new production building with 1,500 m² area is planned for mid-2023. This allows to create a production-related storage area for tools, modules and devices, which will enable four additional engine bays by repurposing hall space. It is also planned to hire more than 40 new employees with different specializations within the next two years.

Matthias Gruber, Managing Director of LTAA, commented: "To have over 30 years of sustainable and innovative success with an engine requires a strong partner like GE on the one hand, and our excellently trained employees on the other. Their outstanding commitment as well as the cooperative partnership has allowed LTAA to shape and help develop the market over a long period of time. That is what makes me personally extremely proud of our company."
