Reports from Nigeria suggest the Federal Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the establishment of a maintenance center in Abuja (Nigeria). It will be capable of carrying out A,B,C and D checks on aircraft now operating in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

Anyone in Germany has solid confirmation on this? We've been used to hearing all sorts of wishful thinking from Nigerian media.

Is this going to be mostly for Lufthansa's use, or use as an MRO for other airlines?

Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

There's no information whether Lufthansa will use it to service their aircraft as well, although, with properly trained human capital available for lower costs, it would seem logical for the airline to maintain some of its fleet there as well.

Other locally-based airlines will surely use it, such as Arik Air. It already has an ageement with Lufthansa Technik in place to maintain its Bombardier and Boeing fleet (CRJ-900, 737-700 / 800 NG).

I have seen this info before, the hangar will be use by Lufthansa Technik to and they will do maintenance to some customers in the area.

I think it is an good move, because aviation in this part of Africa is bigger and bigger and they have a very good forecast fot the upcoming years.

They won´t send any LH plane. LH Technik is a reference in the sector and they work in many different places, the name of Lufthansa does not mean that they work for LH everywhere, they are a different company, and they serve many customers.

Agreed, short of capacity/logistics issues elsewhere LH probably wouldn't have much of a need for it.

This is a case of 'if you build it, they will come'; it's an emerging market and this sort of facility could be very attractive to a lot of airlines.

Either that or LH are brilliant corporate citizens, stimulating the Nigerian economy through creating construction jobs.

Or not.
