Lufthansa Technik has pre-launched a cabin design for the BBJ 777-9, formerly referred to as the BBJ 777X. The design prioritises versatility and multifunctionality, and incorporates traditional elements of Middle Eastern cultural heritage with a modern twist.
The VVIP section at the front features an expandable private bedroom. The detailed design will be revealed later this year. An office and reception area divides the private section from the remaining areas of the aircraft, and there is also a large majlis.
The back of the cabin has been designed to transport entourage delegations in style and convenience to cater for the needs of official missions. A special light and window shade concept has been implemented throughout the cabin.
Lufthansa Technik said the design development used native aircraft data as provided by Boeing; adding that this ensures the feasibility of the design, as the dimensions and space shown are 100% accurate.
“We are thrilled to unveil first insights into this new VIP cabin design for the BBJ 777-9,” said Jan Grube, sales director, VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services, Lufthansa Technik. “Our team’s mission was to create a cabin that is both functional and beautiful, while also meeting the unique needs of our VIP clients in the Middle East. We are confident that this cabin design will set a new standard for VIP aviation, and we look forward to bringing it to market.”
More areas of the concept will be presented gradually throughout the year.
