At NBAA-BACE, Lufthansa Technik is showcasing new products including the Explorer VIP cabin concept, nice CMS developments, and more.
With a dedicated aftermarket sales team for the nice CMS, Lufthansa Technik is announcing product developments for Bombardier Challenger 300 and 350 operators. The new product portfolio includes a retrofit offer providing an HD screen experience, Bluetooth connectivity and many other options.
“This best-in-class business jet, with easy-to-install 21st-century technologies on board, will take the customer experience to the next level,” said Gordon Weller, director, aftermarket and customised solutions.
The company is also showcasing the Three-In-One-Solution (TIOS), a radome and structural integration unit, developed in-house, for mounting on the vertical stabiliser of the aircraft; a solution that lately integrated new antennas and cameras. Satcom Direct’s Plane Simple Ku-band variant tail-mount antenna and Collins’ Ku-SAT 2000 can now be installed in TIOS, as well as Otonomy’s CAMHD-T Camera and the Aerial View System AVS900. An STC to install TIOS on the Boeing 737-9 is in the planning process.
The Explorer design concept is being presented for the first time in the USA. The concept was inspired by superyacht owners who want to go to far-away places and have their yacht serve as a hotel or base camp for a wide variety of leisure activities and excursions. Lufthansa Technik’s specialists have chosen the A330 as the platform for realising this customer need in aviation, given its wide-body space and sufficiently long range for the target group.
Within the overarching theme of explorers and adventure, there is an exclusive extension: in collaboration with luxury mobility brand Brabus, an Adventure Lounge is offered on the aircraft’s lower deck, which can be viewed from the main deck through a glass floor.
