Mobile Service Offered by Lufthansa Technik
Lufthansa Technik’s newly established Mobile Aircraft and Cabin Services (Macs) team has already completed several maintenance events at the home bases of different executive jet customers. According to the company, Macs is designed to maximize the availability of executive aircraft and reduce the cost for smaller scheduled maintenance checks. Most recently, in Amman, Jordan, Macs technicians performed one six- and one nine-month check of an Airbus A318 Elite for long-term customer the Royal Flight of Jordan. Richard Hamer, director of the Royal Flight of Jordan, said, “This new mobile service offered by Lufthansa Technik’s VIP maintenance division performs maintenance in our own hangar. It saves the cost and time of the return ferry flight to Europe, including the cost for supporting staff, operating crew, and the aircraft direct and indirect operating costs while ensuring we can maintain the same Lufthansa Technik quality.” Macs covers small but compulsory maintenance events, wear-and-tear problems in the aircraft cabin, implementation of certain unscheduled airworthiness directives and service bulletins, technical logbook items and deferred defects. The service is currently offered for all Airbus and Boeing bizliners.
