Malta is emerging as a prime location of the European aviation maintenance industry, with Lufthansa Technik's operation there set to continue its expansion - and to gain SR Technics as a neighbour. On the eve of next week's MRO Europe exhibition in London, we examine the Mediterranean missions of the two maintenance giants, before switching focus to explore human factors and maintenance error management programmes, BA Engineering's third-party maintenance plans, the Boeing 787 preparations under way at Europe's overhaulers, and a development in the continent's software sector.
