Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon (LTTS) has unveiled its new MRO facility in Shannon’s Free Zone. The new building, covering 2,000 square metres, will offer new products for CFM56 and V2500 turbine engines powering Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 aircraft.

Operations in the new facility will begin in the first quarter of 2023. Its arrival hopes to offer new highly skilled jobs to the mid-west region of Ireland.

“This is a very special milestone for Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon, that is celebrating its 30 years in operations in Ireland,” says Michael Malewski, CEO and Managing Director, LTTS.

“We are delighted to add a manufacturing operation to the Shannon Aviation Services Cluster. The region has been home to Lufthansa Technik MRO activities since the 1990s, and it’s great to contribute to its expansion,” he said.
