Lufthansa Technik re-delivers BBJ to Royal Jet


December 1, 2016 – Lufthansa Technik’s VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services division has re-delivered a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) to Royal Jet, a VVIP charter operator in the Middle East.

The cabin of the 34-seat aircraft was designed by New York-based designer Edése Doret in a minimalist style, combining geometric shapes and organic structures. The dominant elements in the cabins – including a bedroom, two fully-featured bathrooms and two VIP lounge areas – have been produced from modern materials, including genuine carbon fiber as well as metal and plastic surfaces.

A highlight of the design is the starry sky, consisting of approximately 15,000 light points running across the ceiling throughout the entire cabin. A variety of different lighting scenarios including a starry sky can be illustrated with mood-lighting elements and fiber optic technology.

This aircraft is the second BBJ that the division has re-delivered to Royal Jet, the first of which was re-delivered in October. The second completion was finished on time after nine months at Lufthansa Technik’s Hamburg location.

These aircraft are claimed by Lufthansa Technik to be the first BBJs worldwide fitted with Ka-band antenna systems as part of their initial completion. The integrated ‘niceview mobile’ flight information system from Lufthansa Technik supplies passengers with a variety of travel information, while the installation of a fully digital mobile phone network (GSM) also allows use of cell phones in flight.
