-Existing capabilities to be expanded by Boeing 787 base maintenance

Lufthansa Technik Malta (LTM) becomes the European center of
excellence for the overhaul of widebody aircraft. The company, which
recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, will expand its portfolio
to also provide base maintenance services for Boeing 787 aircraft.  
LTM is currently investing several million Euros in training its
technical experts, tooling and material. The first aircraft is
expected to arrive on its premises in Spring 2024.

Maria Cilia, Head of Base Maintenance Services & CEO of Lufthansa
Technik Malta said: "It is a pleasure to start my position as the new
CEO of Lufthansa Technik Malta with such an important investment in
our company. With the expansion of our portfolio, we will not only
become the center of excellence for widebody aircraft overhaul in
Europe to serve our Boeing 787 operators in the region, but we will
also strengthen our presence in the Maltese community and create new
opportunities for current and future employees."

"Building on the significant role that Lufthansa Technik Malta has
had within our base maintenance network over the past two decades,
our investment in enhancing capabilities with a dedicated overhaul
line for Boeing 787 aircraft will further solidify the company's
standing as center of excellence for modern widebody aircraft. This
development will allow us greater flexibility in meeting our
customers' needs, leveraging LTM's remarkable efficiency and
reliability," added Alexander Feuersaenger, Vice President & COO
Aircraft Maintenance Services at Lufthansa Technik.
