Lufthansa Technik is to expand its operations in Malta by investing between EUR 50 and 60 million in new aircraft maintenance facilities. The facility, which will be the first outside of Germany to handle large aircrafts (Airbus A330 and A340 Aircraft) should start running as early as in 2008 and will eventually create 550 new jobs. The company's links with the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) which offers courses for aviation maintenance technicians were essential for the success of this project.
