Lufthansa Technik AG has signed a major cabin refurbishment contract
with a new undisclosed Asian VIP customer. The lay-over of an Airbus
ACJ319 will take place at Lufthansa Technik´s VIP center in Hamburg,
Germany and will be completed within the year 2019.
The aircraft´s interior and systems will be refreshed to improve the
passenger comfort and meet the demand of its owner, so that the
aircraft will be as good as new for its next life. Particularly, the
aircraft will receive a comprehensive modification and upgrade
package, which includes a state of the art entertainment system,
enhanced sound insulation and a KA band connectivity solution.
"It is a great opportunity for us to work with Lufthansa Technik, the
number one completion center in the world", said a member of the
customer's senior management. "I think we just made a small step. But
I believe we can develop a good relationship with this important
project. And I really expect a meaningful result based on Lufthansa
Technik's professionalism and craftsmanship."
"We are very proud to welcome this new VIP customer for a major
refurbishment from Asia here at our facility in Hamburg," said Jan
Grube, Head of Asia Sales for VIP & Special Mission Aircraft at
Lufthansa Technik. "The Asian VIP aircraft market has become more and
more important for our business over the past years. More than 30
completions and major refurbishments in the Asian region clearly
demonstrate that our expertise and broad service portfolio are well
accepted by our customers in this part of the world."
The portfolio of Lufthansa Technik's VIP & Special Mission Aircraft
Division is reaching from highly individual cabin completions, over
modular completion concepts, refurbishment and modification programs
