Connectivity modification programme starts in Budapest in mid-2018
From mid-2018, Lufthansa Technik AG will start connectivity modifications on several Boeing 737 MAX aircraft of an undisclosed airline customer at its overhaul facility Lufthansa Technik Budapest.
The five-day modification includes the installation of a broadband antenna on the aircraft’s external structure, together with cabling, hardware and software installation in the aircraft cabin.
Following the modification program, full base maintenance capability will be built up for Boeing 737 MAX at Lufthansa Technik Budapest in the next months in a first step. Capability extension at further locations of the Lufthansa Technik network will follow.
Lufthansa Technik already supports Boeing 737 MAX operators with component services.
