C-Check on a Boeing 787 of LOT Polish Airlines inaugurated base 
maintenance services for the type

Lufthansa Technik Malta (LTM) yesterday celebrated the completion of 
its first base maintenance event on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The 
finished C-check on LOT Polish Airlines' 787-9 registered SP-LSC 
followed only months after last year's announcement that LTM would 
expand its product portfolio onto Boeing's popular long-haul 

LTM has invested several million euros in preparing for the technical
support of the Boeing 787, including the training of its technical 
experts and the procurement of the necessary tools and materials. 
Within Lufthansa Technik's global network, LTM can now further 
strengthen and expand its role as the European competence center for 
base maintenance of wide-body aircraft.

The so-called C-Check comprises extensive checks of the various 
systems of the aircraft and its structure, which in the case of the 
Boeing 787 consists to a very large extent of composite materials. On
the one hand, LTM was able to build on its own extensive experience 
in dealing with these modern materials, which the company has gained 
over many years of supporting the Airbus A350, for example. On the 
other hand, the company was able to draw on the extensive expertise 
from other international Lufthansa Technik locations for a wide range
of work packages, for example in the application of various NDT 
(non-destructive testing) procedures for composite materials.

"We are very pleased with the completion of the first base 
maintenance check on our Boeing 787-9 by Lufthansa Technik Malta," 
said Krzysztof Krolak, Vice President Technical Operations at LOT 
Polish Airlines. "This significant milestone, which comes only months
after LTM's announcement to expand its product portfolio to include 
Boeing's popular long-haul widebody, underscores the robust 
capabilities and technical expertise within the Lufthansa Technik 

"After years of servicing only Airbus models here in Malta, it feels 
special that we now once again actively service a Boeing aircraft 
type. And with LOT's unique special livery, what better way could 
there have been to introduce the Dreamliner in our facility," said 
Maria Cilia, LTM's Chief Executive Officer. "This is an important 
milestone for us and stands as further testament to how much this 
company has grown and evolved into a wide-body center of excellence. 
I would like to thank our customers for their great trust in our 
services. Special thanks goes to my team for their dedication, 
passion and continued commitment to our customers and our company."

"The recent layover not only marked the first 787 check for our team 
in Malta, it moreover marked our first ever base maintenance services
for our valued Polish customer", added Andreas van de Kuil, Vice 
President Central Sales Europe and CIS. "I also thank LOT Polish 
Airlines for their trust in this cooperation, which we hopefully can 
deepen even further in the time to come."
