Nayak Aircraft Service was founded 1974, as a subsidiary of BAT-Air, for aircraft maintenance, the main areas being Rockwell Commander and Metroliner. In 1986 Nayak was taken over by NFD – Nürnberger Flugdienst. Nayak then expanded its activities to the NFD ATR fleet. At that time the company employed about 70 people. Due to the joint venture agreement between NFD and Air Europe, Nayak carried the sole responsibility for the maintenance of two B757 aircraft. Since this time Nayak has continually expanded its licenses.

In 1993 both NFD and Nayak were taken over by RFG, Dortmund. The joined companies were then renamed to Eurowings. Nayak was a major partner for the aircraft maintenance of Eurowings and was leading in the introduction of jets to the fleet. During this period Nayak expanded its business into the Line Maintenance area.

In 2017 Nayak was bought by a Group of private equity investors.

At the Beginning of 2018 the formerly activities of the Air Berlin Technik & training with its stations in Dusseldorf and Berlin and more than 200 employees joined Nayak-LM Germany.
