Lufthansa Technik, the German aviation services company – a provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for aircraft and engines and 100% subsidiary of Lufthansa German Airlines – has announced that it will build a new repair hangar specifically for Airbus A380 aircraft in the Philippines.
The A380 is the world’s largest commercial passenger jet, but it currently has only four locations it can go to in the world for repairs. Now the Philippines plans to join these locations.
