   Lufthansa Technik to set up Indian MRO facility in Hyderabad
   Lufthansa Technik has decided to set up a new facility in India for Boeing and Airbus narrow-body aircraft. The facility
   will be located at Shamshabad, Andhra Pradesh, the site of the upcoming Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International Airport.
   Lufthansa Technik has chosen to team up with the GMR Group, one of India’s infrastructure developers and the
   concessionaire of the airports at Hyderabad and Delhi. Lufthansa Technik will be the majority stakeholder in the
   company holding more than 75% of its equity share capital.
   The facility will provide base maintenance services,
   including C- and D-checks, for Airbus A320 family and
   classic and NG Boeing 737 aircraft. The facility is expected
   to commence operations at the end of 2008 with two
   parallel lines to maintain narrow-body aircraft of Indian
   carriers. Investment in the two-bay hangar and its
   workshops will be $20 million in the initial phase – the
   construction of the 20,000 square meters facility shall begin
           in summer 2007.
                             ”We see this venture as the foundation for a long

                             August W. Henningsen, Chairman of the Executive
                             Board, Lufthansa Technik AG, during a joint press
                                                                                      Lufthansa Technik facility in Budapest, Hungary (Lufthansa Technik)

                             airplanes on order, the Indian aviation market is one of the fastest growing in the world. The new facility will
                             complement the existing MRO support being provided to new as well as existing fleets in India and ensures an
                             optimal MRO support within the country.”
                             Effective immediately, the company will commence training to develop technicians and aircraft engineers. This
                             will be achieved in cooperation with Lufthansa Technical Training through a specially designed training program,
                             tailored to the requirements of the facility. A dialogue with technical institutes in the State of Andhra Pradesh has
                             already been initiated. “We are looking at total employment of more than 400 highly qualified personnel once we
                             are fully operational and plan to concentrate recruitment within the State of Andhra Pradesh,” said Dominik
                             Wiener-Silva, designated Managing Director of the new company. “We also expect Hyderabad to emerge as a
                             new aviation cluster with some of the countries best qualified engineers and technicians.”
