Posted 6 December 2016 · Add Comment

Based on a cooperation agreement from May 2016, Lufthansa Technik and DC Aviation Group have recently performed a first A-check for a narrowbody aircraft at Al Maktoum International Airport (Dubai World Central Airport) in Dubai.

The services were provided for an Airbus A319 of an undisclosed customer from the region in the hangars and VIP facilities of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim LLC, a joint venture of DC Aviation and the Al-Futtaim Group. 

The workscope of about 350 hours included the check of all systems which are relevant for flight safety, the exchange of several components, the completion of service bulletins and as a special topic the test of the ram air turbine. 

As part of the cooperation agreement, the product portfolio consists of regular checks as well as maintenance services, including unplanned repairs for example in the case of an AOG (Aircraft on Ground). It also features services for aircraft cabins, including small modifications. Moreover, plans call for a mobile aircraft and cabin service to serve the region.
