Lufthansa Technik Malta inaugurates a newly-extended hangar at Malta IAP

Tourism Minister K. Vella this morning reiterated government support to the aviation maintenance sector as he inaugurated a newly-extended hangar at Lufthansa Technik Malta. The extension will enable the company to work simultaneously on three large wide-bodied aircraft. The extension, which cost some €4.5 million, will allow the hangar to accommodate planes such as the Airbus A330 and A340. Lufthansa Technik Malta CEO S. Drewes said the hangar extension would play a pivotal role in bringing large carriers to the island. (Source: timesofmalta.com, 21-Nov-2013)
