Lufthansa’s growing technical base in Sofia
Lufthansa Technik’s investment at Sofia Airport is expanding. The company also maintains aircraft for Oman Air, Wizz Air - and now the entire fleet of UK low-cost airline BMI-baby.
Opened in October 2008, Lufthansa Technik Sofia is a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and the Bulgarian Aviation Group. It employs 330.
The company specializes in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft in the Airbus A320 family and the Boeing 737 series.
Recently it expanded capacity with a new 2-bays hangar. A separate unit will be built for line maintenance operations.
Specialist Lufthansa contractors have used Cleves for accommodation.
