Lufthansa Technik and Airbus Defence and Space have signed a contract that enables the purchase of an unlimited number of Lufthansa Technik’s Patient Transport Units Next Generation (PTU NG), a solution for transporting patients requiring intensive medical care and for medical evacuation missions.
The initial aircraft type fitted with the PTU NG is the C295, with four fully equipped units. This first program started in May 2016 with a scheduled delivery in the first quarter of 2017.
The PTU NG has already been integrated and installed in commercial A380 and several VIP aircraft. The unit has a modular design that can be customized, with up to 13,000 liters of oxygen. Lufthansa Technik says the PTU NG could also be installed on any further Airbus aircraft types or those from other manufacturers.
