- Revenues of the successful product increase significantly compared
with the pre-crisis period

- New repair station opened just outside Dublin, further site planned
in Asia

Mobile Engine Services (MES) have become a real success story for
Lufthansa Technik AG. More and more customers are relying on smart
repair solutions that can avoid or delay extensive engine overhauls
and thus save costs. Lufthansa Technik's revenue from MES services
increased by more than a third in 2022 compared with the pre-crisis
year 2019. Accordingly, the global MES network consisting of five
highly specialized sites to date will be further expanded.

A new and much larger repair station opened this Tuesday just outside
Dublin. Lufthansa Technik's Irish MES site is located in Celbridge
and offers a 3500-square-meter state-of-the-art facility with ten
engine bays, providing twice the previous capacity. Currently, the
facility already has 30 highly qualified employees working on
CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B engines, which are used on the Airbus A320ceo
family and the Boeing 737 Next Generation respectively. If business
continues to develop, there are plans to double the number of
employees within the next two years.

"The expansion in Celbridge further strengthens our Mobile Engine
Services in the EMEA region as well as the entire network. We are
growing and positioning ourselves even more broadly," says Markus
Berberich, Head of MES Production at Lufthansa Technik. In addition
to the Irish site, the company has four other MES repair stations to
date, in Frankfurt (Germany), Montréal (Canada), Tulsa (Oklahoma/USA)
and Shenzhen (China). "A sixth site is already being planned," says
Berberich. "I can't reveal details yet, but it will most likely be in

MES customers include airlines, lessors and engine manufacturers.
Depending on their needs and the requirements and complexity of the
repairs, Lufthansa Technik's Mobile Engine Services offer a wide
range of surgical solutions either directly on-wing (InOperation), at
the customer's site (InField) or at one of the MES stations
(InStation). Customers benefit from rapid response times, made
possible by experienced Airline Support Teams (AST®), as well as
Lufthansa Technik's capabilities as a leading MRO provider, such as
seamless access to the materials warehouse. Significantly reduced
engine downtimes and an extended period of time before the valuable
assets have to be completely overhauled mean that customers enjoy
considerable cost savings.
