Last night the first of two Airbus A321neoLR (Long Range) for the
German Air Force arrived at Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg. The
aircraft bears the military registration 15+10. Its sister aircraft
15+11 will follow in the coming weeks. This marks the start of the
cabin conversion of the two aircraft, carried out by the Original
Equipment & Special Aircraft Services business unit, for various
mission types such as troop transports, parliamentary flight
operations and the MedEvac (medical evacuation) role. Delivery of the
converted aircraft is scheduled for the second half of 2022.

With the Airbus A321neoLR, the German Air Force will receive a
future-proof, modern passenger aircraft which can be deployed on
short-, medium- and long-haul flights. With the installations made by
Lufthansa Technik, the aircraft can be used in four different
interior configurations. Their passenger transport capacity ranges up
to 136.

Furthermore, either the transport of up to six intensive care
patients or the transport of up to twelve slightly or moderately
ill/injured patients as well as various mixed configurations for
patient transport are possible. Lufthansa Technik will therefore
supply twelve Patient Transport Units (PTUs) as well as two reserve
units required for the MedEvac role to the German Armed Forces.
