Lufthansa Technik designs government cabin for ACJ TwoTwenty

Lufthansa Technik designs government cabin for ACJ TwoTwenty

- Fully customizable VIP interior for smallest Airbus Corporate Jet

- Flexible configuration for dignitary/delegation transport and
MedEvac role

Lufthansa Technik AG today unveiled a first glimpse on the design for a government cabin based on the smallest Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ)
type. The design for the ACJ TwoTwenty is aimed specifically at government and military operators who, on the one hand, attach great importance to high functionality of the interior and, on the other hand, need to perform other specialized tasks with their aircraft.

The best example of this is the MedEvac (Medical Evacuation) role,  which is currently in particularly high demand. Just as for conventional delegation transport, Lufthansa Technik's interior also offers a highly customizable solution for this.

The design equips the ACJ TwoTwenty, for example, with divisible areas for working (2 passengers), conferencing (7 passengers) and even sleeping for political dignitaries, ensuring a high level of comfort and functionality as well as security and privacy. In addition, the standard configuration includes a large delegation area consisting of twelve Premium Economy Class and 20 Economy Class seats. Altogether, 41 passengers can travel in this configuration,
significantly more than on conventional business jets at comparable

In the MedEvac configuration, up to eight stretchers can be installed for transporting lightly and moderately injured/ill patients, or two new-generation Patient Transport Units (PTU NG) for intensive care patients. Mixed configurations with stretchers and PTU NGs are also possible. With the additional tanks of the ACJ variant, the Lufthansa Technik-equipped A220 configuration will provide a range of up to 5,650 nautical miles (10,460 kilometers).

"With its cabin dimensions, the ACJ TwoTwenty represents an optimal
platform for the most diverse manifestations of future government and
special mission aircraft, at the price of significantly smaller and
less flexible aircraft types," explained Wieland Timm, Head of Sales
for Special Mission Aircraft at Lufthansa Technik. "With our
expertise both in the field of VIP completion but also in the field
of special mission modifications, we are able to reflect even the
high demands of governments or armed forces in this type of aircraft,
and to do so highly individually. With this initial concept as a
basis, we are therefore eager to start talking to the first potential
customers very soon."

Lufthansa Technik will be presenting its vision of a highly flexible A220 government cabin as well as its expertise in the MedEvac and special mission areas, both at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE, booth H72) in Geneva, Switzerland, and at the International Defense and Security Exhibition (IDET, Hall P, booth 125) in Brno, Czech Republic.

The company had already presented an equally exclusive and completely
customizable VIP cabin concept for the Airbus A220 for other VIP completion target groups. Dubbed "SkyRetreat", the interior was unveiled in 2019 and was aimed at a much younger and private clientele. With individual cabin monuments in the style of a luxurious beach club or a yacht deck as well as an "observation
lounge" to the cockpit, SkyRetreat brought a completely new sense of
space to a private jet.
