Lufthansa Technik welcomes 126 interns
A total of 126 young people begin their training within the Lufthansa Technik group in August 2021. The trainees all study a profession oriented towards aeronautical, industrial or logistics technology.
Despite the pandemic and the structural changes in the company, Lufthansa Technik continues to rely on the training of highly skilled workers, even in difficult times – and has done so for more than six decades. Especially now, the company wants to attract young employees who want to work in a fascinating and demanding industry.

“We see training as a long-term instrument, which needs continuity,” said Barbara Koerner, responsible for training and work-study students at Lufthansa Technik. “Only then can all the interfaces involved – such as trainers, specialist services, operational deployment areas and vocational schools – provide optimal quality training. In this context, Lufthansa Technik has made the conscious decision to maintain its training activities. Only the number of places has been adjusted in response to the crisis.
Of the new learning, 109 are directly attributable to Lufthansa Technik, the remainder to Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services and Lufthansa Engineering and Operational Services (LEOS). This means that there are now around 650 young people in training or work-study training within the Lufthansa Technik group in Germany.
As in the previous year, the proportion of women is 14%. Lufthansa Technik will continue to expand its activities to provide targeted information to female students about the many possibilities for exercising technical professions.
Originally, a higher number of new interns was planned for this year. However, the effect of the pandemic and a reduced workload in many areas of the business made it necessary to adjust the requirements accordingly.
The training started on August 2, 2021 at Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg. The 101 people include 23 electronic devices and systems technicians; 24 aircraft mechanics specializing in repair technology; 17 tool mechanics; 14 aircraft mechanics with a specialty in engine technology; 12 aircraft mechanics specializing in manufacturing technology; six aircraft electronics specialists; and five surface coating technicians.
Eight people started their training on the same day at Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services in Hamburg. There are six warehouse logistics interns and two shipping and logistics service specialists.
The other trainees are all due to start their studies on August 16, 2021. These include a specialist in mechatronics engineering at LEOS in Frankfurt, and another at LEOS in Munich; plus, at Lufthansa Technik in Frankfurt, eight aircraft mechanics specializing in engine technology. At Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services in Frankfurt there will be six interns in warehouse logistics and a specialist in shipping and logistics services.
