With Lufthansa ready to start scheduled A350 operations on February 10, 2017, Lufthansa Technik's support for the newest Airbus widebody is in full swing. Lufthansa Technik is not only licensed and ready to maintain the Airbus A350 in all aspects of the aircraft's life cycle, the company is also the first address for a unique VVIP cabin completion.

Lufthansa Technik has been supporting the A350's development with a special focus on maintainability from the very beginning. The company is 100 percent ready to provide the engineering and line maintenance services for the A350 today. In the area of material supply, Lufthansa Technik covers a large part of the A350 components, in many cases working together with original equipment manufacturers. Several supported customer fleets have already achieved a very high technical dispatch reliability.

At the beginning of 2017, Lufthansa Technik received an extension of its approval as a design organization for the new aircraft from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA Part 21/J). The company is thus authorized to develop and approve repairs and modifications to a limited extent under its own responsibility.

Furthermore, a dedicated A350 community was initiated by Lufthansa Technik, with the main goal of enabling airlines worldwide to exchange their experiences with their A350s and benefit from these exchanges. The first workshop was held at the end of 2016, focusing on key topics in A350 technical operations including predictive maintenance, supply chain management and the A350 as an e-enabled aircraft.

At EBACE 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland, Lufthansa Technik presented a brand-new A350 VVIP interior concept called "Welcome Home". The unique cabin is placing the human being in the center of the story and emphasizes a comprehensive approach towards health and well-being on board. It promotes flexible areas for privacy or valuable family time and provides super connectivity in regard to all communication channels.
