Lufthansa Technik has added overhaul capabilities for Boeing 787 aircraft along with the availability of exchange shipsets for this aircraft type's landing gears.
The German MRO says it is preparing to build up the capability at its Hamburg base along with its Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK business located near London Heathrow Airport.
In addition, Lufthansa Technik says the service will also be available in the Americas region through its Los Angeles-based subsidiary Hawker Pacific Aerospace, which specializes in landing gear and hydraulic MRO services.
As it prepares for the introduction of 787 landing gear services, Lufthansa Technik says it will draw on specialist teams while also expanding its technical expertise.
One route will be utilizing mobile airline support teams which operate under its Airline Support Team offering set up to assist around the clock in AOG situations.
From a logistics perspective, Lufthansa Technik says it has also developed a new solution to transport the landing gears through the design of dedicated transport crates which will be available to save transportation costs.
