Cyclean® – Wash and go
Regularly cleaned engines require less maintenance and less fuel, thus protecting the environment. With Cyclean®, Lufthansa Technik has developed an engine wash that allows this previously time-consuming procedure to be completed directly at the gate – and now takes just 45 minutes.
Into the future with hydrogen
An ambitious vision is on the horizon: hydrogen has the potential to enable climate-neutral flight operations. Lufthansa Technik is already laying the groundwork to get this new approach to flying airborne.
