About us: Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico
State-of-the-art aircraft overhauls in the Americas
400 highly qualified staff to serve A319, A320 and A321 aircraft
Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico started operations on July 21, 2015 with its first overhaul line. A second line is planned to be operational in November 2015, followed by three more lines until 2017. Up to 400 highly qualified people will work for the company in a site that covers a total area of 215,000 square feet.
The hangar handles 5 parallel lines of overhaul checks (C, IL- and D-checks, along with other maintenance work on narrow body aircrafts). Using state-of-the-art technologies it is even possible to paint an aircraft in the hangar while overhaul work is conducted in parallel. This saves valuable time that would otherwise be required for repositioning the aircraft in a separate paint shop. Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico is FAA Part 145- and EASA Part 145-approved.

The staff of Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico benefits from the Puerto Rico Aviation Maintenance Institute's long experience and the training expertise of Lufthansa Technik. In the future, with the opening of the Aeronautical and Aerospace Institute of Puerto Rico (AAIPR), the education of entry level mechanics is guaranteed.

On current forecasts, demand for maintenance services specifically for the Airbus A320 family is expected to rise steadily over the coming years.
