Deutsche Aircraft and Latecoere announced the appointment of Latecoere as strategic supplier for all doors of the regional 40-seater Turboprop D328eco aircraft, a platform that is accelerating the aviation industry’s transition towards lower emissions. Through this build-to-print contract, Latecoere will manufacture all six doors of Deutsche Aircraft’s regional 40-seater turboprop D328eco aircraft for the duration of the program: passenger door, service door, cargo door, emergency doors, hatch door. The group will leverage its industrial footprint in Europe to supply Deutsche Aircraft’s serial production facility in Leipzig. Prior to manufacturing, Latecoere’s engineering office in Toulouse will support the 2D-to-3D design phase. First doors will be delivered to Deutsche Aircraft by mid-2025.

Greg Huttner, CEO of Latecoere, commented: “Deutsche Aircraft and Latecoere share the same ambition for sustainable aviation. Building on a strong heritage and next-gen innovations, the D328eco will meet its challenges and as a tier 1 partner we are extremely proud to contribute to its journey with our leading door expertise and capabilities.”

Maximilian Fahr, Vice President Supply Chain at Deutsche Aircraft, said: "Doors are intricate and essential components of the aircraft construction, Latecoere's track record and outstanding position on the door market are major assets for our D328eco programme. With this contract we are one step closer to finishing a fully robust supply chain that satisfies our operational efficiency criteria and supports our long-term sustainable strategy with the inclusion of Latecoere to our industrial partner portfolio.”
