-Three-year Base Maintenance agreement
-Lufthansa Technik and Emirates again extending relationship

Lufthansa Technik and Emirates have just signed a Base Maintenance 
Services (BMS) contract for Airbus A380s during the Dubai Airshow. By
October 2026, another 23 of the world's largest passenger aircraft 
will undergo C-checks performed by Lufthansa Technik Philippines 
(LTP) in Manila. With the agreement now signed, the Dubai-based 
airline is once again entrusting heavy checks for this fleet type 
from its own in-house MRO capacities to the world's leading MRO 

Lufthansa Technik's competence center for Base Maintenance Services 
on the double-decker long-haul aircraft in Manila has already carried
out several heavy checks for Emirates' A380s since January this year.
As soon as the ten A380s covered by the very first agreement have 
undergone the checks, additional 23 aircraft will follow. By October 
2026, LTP will have performed base maintenance checks for 33 
Emirates' Airbus, which is over a quarter of the world's largest A380

To cope with the significantly increased demand for MRO services on 
the world's largest commercial airliner type, LTP has invested in 
additional A380 overhaul capacities. Due to the expanded MRO 
infrastructure such as the construction of a new 9,000 square meter 
hangar, three of these superjumbos can be overhauled at the same time
in Manila.  

While the new Base Maintenance Services contract was signed and 
celebrated at the Airshow in Dubai, there is also reason to cheer in 
the United Kingdom: The first overhaul of the Emirates A380 landing 
gear was completed in the specialized workshop of Lufthansa Technik 
Landing Gear Services (LTLGS) in London. Since August this year, 
LTLGS has been performing overhaul services on the Emirates A380's 
body and wing landing gear.

Kai Roepke, Senior Vice President Corporate Sales EMEA at Lufthansa 
Technik, commented: "The fact that Emirates, as the largest Airbus 
A380 operator in the world, assigns us again to overhaul their 
flagship aircraft, is a great compliment to our work. It proves that 
our services consistently align with the exacting standards of our 
customer. Our teams look forward to further expanding our 
relationship with Emirates."
