Lufthansa Technik Plans Bizjet Completions Center in Asia
Lufthansa Technik (LHT) will establish a completions center in Asia “sooner rather than later,” the company said yesterday at Abace. “In the medium term the Chinese market is interesting,” noted LHT senior marketing and sales vice president Walter Heerdt. “We have to be here, otherwise we will not get the best share we can out of this market.” Heerdt remained tight-lipped as to where the company’s new Asian facility will be located. LHT has three joint ventures in Southeast Asia, including two in China, that provide maintenance services for airliners.
