Shannon Aerospace, operated by Lufthansa Technik, as part of its European aircraft overhaul network, has been formally renamed Lufthansa Technik Shannon.
Shannon Aerospace (SAL) – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG – has thus joined Hamburg, Berlin, Budapest, Malta and Sofia as one of the six European base maintenance facilities in name, as well as in practice.
The change in name coincides with the 25th anniversary of the company, which provides services to over 50 airlines and employs a workforce of more than 500.
The renaming of the company is not yet visible everywhere and will be implemented step by step over the coming months. It will not entail any changes for customers in their current contracts, addresses or contact partners.
Lufthansa Technik Shannon specializes in the overhaul of short- and medium-range aircraft. The services offered include basic overhauls (D-checks) and annual checks (C-checks) on the Boeing 737, 757, 767 and the Airbus A320 family of aircraft.
Lufthansa Technik Shannon also specializes in the provision of extensive services to the aircraft leasing business, and here it has the location advantage that over 50% of the world’s largest aircraft leasing companies are based in Dublin and Shannon.
