Lufthansa Technical Training – Set Course for the Future - Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

lhtt_64_yel_rgbLTT issues May 2016 edition newsletter

“In aviation, highly qualified technical personnel is the key to a lot of things: cost-effectiveness, safety as well as growth. Well-trained employees are a competitive advantage. New technologies, too, will only prove themselves in daily operations at an airline when its staff can maintain them. To inspire young people for this mission in the future is an important aspect on the route!

After a year of structural reorientation, we have now set a new strategy for ourselves that shall put us in a position to be the preferred partner for our customers for top-quality, future-oriented training services with a high level of added value.

Maintenance training must forge new paths in order to meet customers’ requirements and to support them in mastering the many challenges of our industry. We want to use our expertise and experience to be a “pacemaker” in this process, with new technological and training concepts.

Among the cornerstones of our strategy is operational stability, which essentially means reliability for our customers.”
