Lufthansa Technik Boosts Middle East Business in Dubai
Lufthansa Technik Middle East Services (LTMES) is expanding its activities in the Middle Eastern aviation market. LTMES bundles the contract partners for sales, logistics, Lufthansa Technical Training and the component business and makes them available in Dubai, said LTMES managing director Ziad al Hazmi.
“We have already added local employees to strengthen both our customer service in the area of component support and the sales office for our regional VIP customers. Now we are considering expanding our material support services, deploying specialized personnel for our customers in the region and providing line maintenance services for customers outside Lufthansa,” he said.
According to al Hazmi, the rising demand for on-site technical services for nacelle components and repair operations for airframe-related components will be expanded as early as the beginning of next year. With a local facility in place, parts and repairs can be offered more efficiently to customers in the region. Depending on the required service, repairs can be undertaken either at the customer’s location or in Dubai without incurring additional transport expenses.
Early next year LTMES will also begin offering the Cyclean Engine Wash at its facility in Dubai as well as at other airports in the region.
