Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) has started its MRO services in the aviation district at Dubai South with the arrival for repair of the first component, a GE90 engine inlet cowl from Etihad Airways.
“We are extremely proud to be the first company to begin operations at the newly opened aerospace supply chain in the Dubai South aviation district,” said Ziad Al Hazmi, CEO LTME. “Having a key presence in the aviation district has put us in a prime position as a leader in the aerospace supply chain sphere. And the arrival of the GE90 inlet cowl from such a well-known
customer such as Etihad demonstrates that our decision to invest here has been right. I am sure, that our growing list of technical
services, including our Airframe Related Component (ARC) portfolio, AOG (aircraft-on-ground) support, landing gear and engine services and our local material support desk will also convince other customers to trust in our technical expertise.”
Ahmed Al Ansari, acting CEO, Dubai South said that the area was a “first-of-its kind facility designed to offer companies, in the MRO and aerospace industry, a multi-advantage edge given our strategic location and the synergistic aviation ecosystem that we are building.”
The current LTME site at Dubai International Airport will be kept operational.
