Lufthansa Technik Philippines (LTP), one of the largest providers of
aircraft maintenance services in Asia, has opened a third hangar in
Manila for work on widebody aircraft. With this step, the company is
preparing for the technical support of the world's largest commercial

Lufthansa Technik Philippines, a joint venture between Lufthansa
Technik (51%) and the Philippine MacroAsia Corporation (49%),
invested USD 30 million in the construction of the new hangar, which
is 8,500 square meters large and 35 meters in height. The new hangar
offers space to work simultaneously on one widebody and two
narrowbody aircraft.

"With the new hangar, we will be able to keep up with the increasing
demand for technical services for long-haul aircraft, particularly in
the Asian market," said Lufthansa Technik Chairman of the Executive
Board, August Wilhelm Henningsen. "By adding A380 capability, it
underscores Lufthansa Technik Philippines' role as global aircraft
overhaul center."
