Shannon Aerospace is an aircraft maintenance company operated by Lufthansa Technik and SR Technics, formerly owned by the collapsed airline Swissair.
Bernd Habbel of Lufthansa Technik said: “I know that we are in talks about that and that we are interested but as far as I know the talks are still ongoing.”
Shannon Aerospace employs 850 people and suffered a difficult year after Sept. 11, 2001.
With revenues of euro 63.76 million, the company made a profit of only euro 848,000 for the year to date.
Swissair itself collapsed as a result of the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks.
Shannon Aerospace carries out maintenance checks on Airbus A320 and McDonnell Douglas aircraft and Boeing 737, 757 and 767 carriers.
