Virgin Atlantic Airways has become Lufthansa Technik's launching customer for base maintenance checks on the Boeing 787 aircraft type. At its Irish overhaul facility Lufthansa Technik Shannon Limited.

The last in a series of six contracted 787 airplanes was recently re-delivered to the carrier. The scope of work for each aircraft included a C1-Check plus several modifications and additional repair work.

Thomas Rueckert, Senior Vice President Base Maintenance at Lufthansa Technik, said "The successful completion of our first 787 base maintenance contract marks an extremely important milestone for our 787 service portfolio and a further expansion of our long standing  relationship with Virgin Atlantic. We invested extensively in training, tooling and preparation for the arrival of the Boeing 787, and it certainly paid off as we achieved competitive turn-around times for these inputs. I would like to thank our employees at Lufthansa Technik Shannon for their dedication and commitment to making this a success."

Philip Wardlaw, Vice President Engineering and Maintenance at Virgin Atlantic, commented  "Lufthansa Technik has been a reliable and trustworthy service partner to Virgin Atlantic for many years and this has now continued with the Boeing 787. We have been very impressed with the hard work, dedication and professionalism of the Lufthansa Technik Shannon team and the great teamwork shown between the two companies."
