Third delivery of an aircraft of this type to the German Armed Forces

Second aircraft with full government cabin, third currently
undergoing conversion

Lufthansa Technik AG today handed over another new Airbus A350
government aircraft to the German Armed Forces. Prior to this, the
modern long-haul jet was ceremonially christened "Theodor Heuss",
after the first President of the Federal Republic of Germany. Already
tomorrow, the aircraft will be ferried from Lufthansa Technik's
Hamburg base to Cologne-Wahn airport to be officially put into
political-parliamentary flight service by the German Airforce.

"Theodor Heuss" bears the tactical registration 10+02 and is the
third aircraft of this type to be handed over by Lufthansa Technik to
the German Armed Forces, following "Kurt Schumacher" (10+03) and
"Konrad Adenauer" (10+01). It is further the second A350 to have a
full government cabin installed. Thus, 10+03, which for reasons of
early availability had only received an interim cabin in 2020, has
returned to Lufthansa Technik's Hamburg headquarters earlier this
year. There, it is now also receiving the full government cabin in
order to complete the German Airforce's A350 fleet in 2024.

10+02 had been transferred factory-fresh to Lufthansa Technik in
October 2021, where the company's Special Aircraft Services segment
has since installed the highly customized government interior meeting
the highest standards of functionality, connectivity, comfort, and
privacy for traveling dignitaries. The interior is rounded off by an
adjoining cabin area for the accompanying delegations. To also make
their stay on board as pleasant as possible, Lufthansa Technik has
not only installed comfortable seating with sufficient seat pitch,
but also an appropriate number of private washrooms and a modern

"Only last November we ceremoniously handed over 'Konrad Adenauer' to
the German Armed Forces, and now 'Theodor Heuss' already marks the
second A350 with a full government cabin to go to our valued
customer," said Michael von Puttkamer, Vice President Special
Aircraft Services at Lufthansa Technik. "The largest modernization
program in the history of the German government fleet thus remains
fully on schedule and on budget, and for this achievement I would
like to express my sincere thanks to our enormously competent and
highly motivated employees."
