A330, A340 and A350
On 20th June 2018 Lufthansa Technik AG has put a new a tail dock in
operation at its Munich base. The company invested over two million
euros in the new infrastructure. The dock is used for maintenance
work on the aircraft types Airbus A330, A340 and A350.

work packages to be carried out simultaneously. The dock is 28.5
meters wide, 21 meters deep and 20.7 meters high. The weight is 125

time, the tail dock enables more efficient and safe handling of the
work packages and is an investment in the future of long-haul
maintenance operations at the Munich base", says Holger Beck, Senior
Director Aircraft Line Maintenance Munich.
With over 800 employees, Lufthansa Technik services short- and
long-haul aircraft for more than 40 customers at its second-largest
