Lufthansa Technik is positioning itself as the ‘go-to’ completion center for the Airbus A350.
Located in Hamburg, Germany the completions center has years of successful experience in VIP aircraft completion; and coupled with its airline business has vast knowledge and resources in both Airbus and Boeing aircraft types.
Now with the forthcoming release of the A350 for corporate and head of state completions, Lufthansa is making a statement indicating its readiness to provide A350 services ranging from VIP cabin completion to engineering and line maintenance, as of the 10 th February 2017.
The company recently received an extension of its EASA Part 21/J approval as a design organization for the A350 which authorizes it to develop and approve repairs and modifications under its own responsibility, overseen by EASA and Airbus OEM guidance.
The company has also previously released interior design concepts for the Airbus A350 ACJ.
The ‘Welcome Home’ design concept centers around ‘Social interaction and privacy’, ‘Relaxation’ and Recreational ambience’.
Social interaction and privacy
The first design priority was to create flexible areas that can be opened and combined for better social interaction and closed for full privacy if so desired. Located in the front part of the aircraft, the “Family Flex Area” facilitates a large and airy private space. An exclusive feature is the large spa area which is equipped with a relaxing steam bath, a massage shower, and a massage table that may also double as a passenger transport unit if so required.
Top sound quality and individual lighting let guests immerse fully in a deeply relaxing surrounding. The guest lounge entertains with a cinema-size screen and offers a new lighting approach. In Lufthansa Technik’s patent-pending new “Living Lining” concept, the ceiling and walls turn into lighting elements that are controlled and colored by mobile devices. For healthy and fresh on-board food preparation, Lufthansa Technik’s new inductive cooking platform has been integrated into the galley.
Perfect ambience for recreation
Taking into account the often extremely tense lifestyles of VIP customers, the “Welcome Home” concept has been consequently optimized to offer a perfect ambience for recreation and relaxation during travel times. The concept is flexible and allows the adaptation to other widebody aircraft, too.
The whole cabin comprises about 270 square meters (about 2,900 sq ft).
