Lufthansa Technik is busy and expects to become busier. The Hamburg, Germany-based MRO and completion and refurbishment company is currently working on an A318 for a Middle East customer, a BBJ for a Far East client and two A340-400s for the German government.

The center expects to see another widebody bizliner arrive later this year. It has several letters of intent for Boeing 747-8s and anticipates winning contracts for two Boeing 787s. These widebody contracts would take up slots into 2016, and according to sales and marketing executive v-p Walter Heerdt, Lufthansa Technik is also interested in taking on the outfitting of Saudi Prince Al-Waleed’s A380. While there are slots for smaller aircraft available in the meantime, such a project would tax the capacity of the center and would not fit into the schedule before 2014.
