Lufthansa Technik keeps high level of workload in VIP-completion business
Lufthansa Technik’s “VIP & Executive Jet Solutions” Division is in the final preparations for the second VIP Boeing 747-8 completion in Hamburg. The aircraft of an undisclosed customer is expected to arrive before end of December. The VIP-business experts of Lufthansa Technik are currently preparing the installation of a unique cabin interior and a state-of-the art in-flight entertainment & cabin management system. The first VIP 747-8 is already undergoing a completion at Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg since its arrival at the end of August. The contract for the second 747-8 was signed during the Dubai Airshow in 2011. With the arrival of this aircraft Lufthansa Technik will work on three widebody and one narrowbody aircraft completion in parallel in Hamburg. Additionally, another narrowbody-line is currently used for a major refurbishment project by Lufthansa Technik’s VIP-maintenance business unit.
