The Cargolux expertise

Cargolux's Maintenance and Engineering Division is dedicated to supporting its fleet of 30 Boeing 747-8 and 747-400 freighter aircraft. The team is committed to providing top quality support which is measured by the exceptional dispatch success.

Specialized line hangar and shop teams are the key asset in achieving great results. Cargolux's highly skilled M&E personnel ensure the highest safety standards are complied with throughout maintenance activities.


M&E's most valuable resource is its skilled and conscientious maintenance work force. The direct maintenance teams working in the line, hangar and shop environments are complemented by engineers, material management, shipping receiving, technical records and employees who support the maintenance operation. The prominence of technical expertise is credited to the company's policy of carefully selecting employees from the industry and maintaining an in-house apprenticeship program for the development of young talents. The apprentice program ensures that dynamic students are able to achieve their ambitions within the aeronautical engineering field.
