The new joint venture will combine LG's advanced, lightweight and flexible OLED display technology with Lufthansa Technik's aviation business capabilities to create new markets for on-board aircraft applications such as welcome board screens and interior linings.

"We are very excited to be joining hands with Lufthansa Technik to expand the reach of LG's innovative consumer electronic technologies to commercial aircraft," said Kwon Soon-hwang, president of LG's Business-to-Business Company.

Closing of the agreement, which was inked earlier this week in Hamburg, is subject to regulatory approval.
