The dock facilitates maintenance work at the rear of long-haul aircraft, as it makes the vertical and horizontal stabilizer and the auxiliary power unit (APU) easier to access. It also allows different work packages to be carried out simultaneously.

 The dock is 28.5 meters wide, 21 meters deep and 20.7 meters high. The weight is 125 tons.

"After two years of project phase and three months of construction time, the tail dock enables more efficient and safe handling of the work packages and is an investment in the future of long-haul maintenance operations at the Munich base," said Holger Beck, Senior Director Aircraft Line Maintenance Munich.

With over 800 employees, Lufthansa Technik services short and long-haul aircraft for more than 40 customers at its second-largest maintenance base within Germany, including more than 100 aircraft of the Lufthansa Group alone.
