Lufthansa Technik set for BBJ 787 modification


Lufthansa Technik will soon embark on a comprehensive BBJ 787-8 cabin modification program. The planned lay-over will last about two months. The green aircraft will arrive in early autumn at Lufthansa Technik’s completion center in Hamburg, Germany.

The cabin modification is based on a service bulletin from the aircraft manufacturer and is adapted to the customer’s needs. It comprises a special cabin layout and the adjustment of the IFE and communications systems. Moreover, the crew rest compartments and galley areas will be modified. Subsequent to the modification, Lufthansa Technik will support the aircraft with technical services.

“The modification of this BBJ 787 is another milestone in further strengthening our expertise on this aircraft type,” said Walter Heerdt, senior vice president of VIP and special-mission aircraft services at Lufthansa Technik. “In addition to our already existing MRO services for different B787 commercial operators, we are now also extending our portfolio for this aircraft model to our VIP business.”
