LHT revolutionises Frankfurt wheel shop

Lufthansa Technik (LHT) is investing almost €60m in the construction and equipment of a new wheels and brakes shop at Frankfurt's East Harbor. This will begin operations in early 2017. Construction of the 14,500m2 facility will start in spring 2015 as Lufthansa urgently seeks to add capacity; the current workshop at Frankfurt airport was originally built for 15,000 wheels and 2,500 brakes, but more than 26,000 wheels and 4,500 brakes per year are now repaired there. The MRO expects to serve both Lufthansa and third-party customers from the new shop.
