Lufthansa Technik expands capabilities for its Executive Jet business
In Tulsa / Oklahoma Lufthansa Technik’s US-subsidiary BizJet International has opened a new dedicated maintenance and refurbishment hangar. This hangar will hold up to a BBJ 737-800 size aircraft. The hangar also has customer offices in-house allowing our customer’s close access to the work being performed on their aircraft.
BizJet’s new FBO facility is open and offering even more services to meet customer’s needs. The new FBO has much more convenient ramp access as well as the ability to hangar up to seven Gulfstream sized aircraft in its hangar. The new FBO also has a conference room, snooze rooms, pilots lounge and many more amenities.
In addition to the new facilities BizJet has also reorganized its organization. A „mobility“ department was founded to combine the resources of the new FBO and BizJet’s engine field service team, called BEST. The mobility department will focus on providing customers one location for FBO services as well as drop-in field service requirements.
Lufthansa Technik’s new Product Division Original Equipment Innovation has opened a 215 square meter facility in Montreal. The office is used for two Montreal teams, one for On-Site Support for Bombardier Aerospace production and Customer Support Innovation the Americas, and the other for on-going Engineering projects.
The site was opened to facilitate support for Bombardier Aerospace after selection of the nice® HD system on the Learjet 70, Learjet 75, Learjet 85, CL350, and CL650 aircraft programs. Plans are already in place to expand the facility – increasing in size and personnel – as the business grows.
