Consulting at Lufthansa Technik
Consulting and business model solutions

The know-how tank

In a highly dynamic market, connecting your fleet requires both technical know-how and dedicated business model solutions. Lufthansa Technik can advise customers from the very outset of their planning process. And we know how future technological advances or changes in customer requirements can affect retrofits or conversions.

Connectivity has become a buzzword in the aviation business. Passengers prefer an airline that offers in-flight Internet access, wishing to remain online during the entire flight. On-board Wi-Fi is therefore more important than mere in-flight entertainment. But service differentiation is just the beginning – airlines must continuously align their business model to avoid falling behind.

  • Planning reliability

“Lufthansa Technik's Supplemental Type Certificates for connectivity solutions cover more than 70% of all commercial aircraft.”

Engineering and certification

Authority approval included

Offering worldwide one-stop shop integration, Lufthansa Technik is the best partner for engineering and certification (EASA 21J) issues of any kind. The integrated design solutions ensure upgradeability and maintainability. Our supplementary type certificates (STCs) cover more than 70 percent of all available commercial aircraft.
