Recent certification by the German Federal Aviation Office

First three A350 customers expected until the end of this year

Lufthansa Technik Malta is now officially prepared to carry out all overhaul work on the Airbus A350-1000. The company has received the requisite license from the German Federal Aviation Office (LBA).

The recent certification amends the approval to perform overhaul work on the baseline A350-900, which was already received in 2018. With immediate effect, Lufthansa Technik Malta is hence also 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.

Marcus Motschenbacher, Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Technik Malta, said: "With this approval, we have further cemented our leading position as the only Airbus widebody overhaul site in the European Lufthansa Technik network. 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."

Already 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. A total of more than 3 million dollars has been invested in the preparation for overhauls of both types, with the first three customers expected until the end of this year.
