Lufthansa Technik, the world leader in technical aircraft services, is opening a new sales office in the Turkish metropolis Istanbul - a step that acknowledges the growing importance of the Turkish market.
Turkey is one of the ten most strongly growing countries around the world and leads growth in Europe. Aviation in particular is steadily gaining in importance there.
"With fifteen airlines within a single country, Turkey offers us great potential. We want to be a reliable partner to our customers, and geographic proximity plays an important role in that regard in addition to a number of other factors," explains Wolfgang Weynell, Vice President Marketing & Sales at Lufthansa Technik.
Ms. Fulya Türköz, office manager in Istanbul, adds: "With the help of this new office, we want to get closer to our Turkish customers and be available to them any time they need us. That's the best way to convince potential customers of our advantages."
Lufthansa Technik maintains 24 sales offices around the world. In addition to the new office in Istanbul, a new representation was opened in Montreal, Canada just a few weeks ago.
The Lufthansa Technik Group, with more than 30 subsidiaries and associates and over 26,000 employees worldwide, is one of the leading manufacturer-independent providers of technical services for the aviation industry. Its portfolio encompasses the entire spectrum of services for commercial aircraft: maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification and conversion, engines and components.
myTECHNIC, based in Istanbul, Turkey, is the first Lean (zero waste) Greenfield maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) center in the world.
