Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey (LTAA) is to construct a new production building in mid-2023 in response to “growing demand”. The building will have an area of approximately 1,500sq m.

LTAA said it would create a production-related storage area for tools, modules and devices, which will enable four additional engine bays by repurposing hall space. The company is planning to hire more than 40 new employees with different specialisations within the next two years.

LTAA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik, is also celebrating 30 years of MRO work on CF34 engines. In that time, LTAA has managed close to 2,000 shop events and more than 200 customers.

In 1992, the first overhauled CF34-3 engines were redelivered in Alzey, the first engine type of the later CF34 series. The CF34-8 was introduced in 2002, and the CF34-10 in 2011.

“Congratulations to LTAA on 30 years of supporting the CF34 programme,” said GE Aviation’s general manager, regional and business aviation Cristina Seda-Hoelle. “Our commitment remains strong in the continued investment of the CF34 engine line to keep supporting our customers in the regional and business aviation space. LTAA’s technical capabilities and proven support fit well with GE’s mission to provide superior engine service.”

LTAA’s managing director Matthias Gruber commented: “To have over 30 years of sustainable and innovative success with an engine requires a strong partner like GE on the one hand, and our excellently trained employees on the other. Their outstanding commitment as well as the cooperative partnership has allowed LTAA to shape and help develop the market over a long period of time. That is what makes me personally extremely proud of our company.”

LTAA celebrated ten years of providing MRO services for the CF34-10E in December 2021.
