Lufthansa Technik AG has revealed that it has signed a cabin refurbishment contract with a new but as-yet undisclosed Asian VIP customer. The work, due to take place during 2019, will involve the lay-over of an Airbus ACJ319 at Lufthansa Technik´s VIP center in Hamburg, Germany.
The scope of work will include refreshing the aircraft’s interior and systems to enhance passenger comfort and to meet the demands of this new owner of the aircraft. Among the modifications and upgrades will be a state-of-the-art entertainment system, enhanced sound insulation and a KA band connectivity system.
“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,” stated Jan Grube, head of Asia sales for VIP & special mission aircraft at Lufthansa Technik.
