Lufthansa Technik AG handed over a converted Airbus A321 to the German Armed Forces. In addition to military missions, the aircraft is also used for political/parliamentary purposes.

On the customer side BAAINBw was responsible for the procurement and on-schedule and on-budget conversion of the former Lufthansa aircraft named “Neustadt an der Weinstraße”. BAAINBw had awarded the contract with a total volume of around €90 million to Lufthansa Technik following a public tender at the beginning of 2017.

In addition to the purchase of the aircraft and its conversion, the contract also included the procurement of spare parts and logistical support to ensure operational readiness as well as the adaptation of the aircraft to the requirements of the BMVg’s Special Air Mission Wing.
