Lufthansa Technik Philippines opens A380 MRO hangar in Manila


Lufthansa Technik Philippines, a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik (51%) and the Philippine MacroAsia Corporation (49%), has opened a third hangar in Manila to serve C-checks and modifications on A380s.

The $30million hangar is 8,500 square meters with a height of 35 meters.

“With the new hangar, we’ll be able to keep up with the increasing demand for technical services for long-haul Airbus aircraft, particularly in the Asian market,” said August Wilhelm Henningsen Lufthansa Technik AG’s Chairman of the Executive Board. “By adding A380 capability, it underscores Lufthansa Technik Philippines’ role as global competence center for Airbus overhauls.”

Lufthansa Technik Philippines, located at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport, offers comprehensive technical services including lease return checks and cabin modification for the Airbus A330/A340 and A320 families and now also for the Airbus A380.
