Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Lufthansa Technik Philippines' (LTP) hangar located?

LTP’s hangar is located inside the Philippines’ largest air force base, the Villamor Air Base, and next to international airport, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). LTP is also a 30-minute ride away from Makati City, a central business district.

LTP also operates within a Philippine special economic zone, where among the incentives are the reduced requirements for conducting business. One advantage of LTP is easier customs clearance for its aircraft materials and components, ensuring faster response time especially in the event of an AOG situation. Aside from its Manila base, LTP also has maintenance stations in Cebu, Clark and Davao.
