Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico secures new customers in The Americas

  • Three new base maintenance customers
  • Additional national authority approvals

Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico secured three new customers for base maintenance and modifications from The Americas region. The Lufthansa Technik base maintenance facility, located in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, specializes in Airbus A320-family aircraft and has increased its range of national aviation certifications. In addition to the existing approvals by the U.S. and Canadian authorities, the company is now also approved by the Aviation Authorities of Brazil and Chile. Approval by four more national authorities in Latin America is currently under review.

Simultaneously, after rigorous auditing processes, the Puerto Rican facility has also become an approved vendor for three new airline customers. Two new customers are based in Latin America. In March, a C2-check, including a WiFi installation, was carried out for Avianca Brazil. This summer, C1-checks and C2-checks will be performed on two A319 aircraft of Sky Airline. Allegiant Air is a new customer of Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico from North America. Exterior and cabin interior work was performed in Aguadilla on an A320 aircraft.

“Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico is delighted with the recent additions to our customer base. Located strategically in Puerto Rico, where we aim to serve customers from both North and South America, we are encouraged by the recent customer acquisitions. Our state-of-the-art facility, together with world class processes and a highly motivated, professional team are what we are building our success on,” said Pat Foley, CEO of Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico.

Inaugurated in 2015 and Part 145-approved by both the FAA and the EASA, approximately 300 highly qualified employees work in the facility. In 2017, the company achieved its final and expanded configuration with five overhaul lines up and running.
