The German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) received one of the most modern observation aircraft for missions under the Treaty on Open Skies. In an official ceremony in Hamburg, Lufthansa Technik handed over the converted Airbus A319CJ to the German armed forces.

The aircraft is intended to fly missions within the framework of confidence-building measures but can also be used for medical and conventional passenger transport.

On the customer side, the conversion of the former business jet, which was completed on schedule and within budget, was overseen by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw). As the general contractor and system integrator, Lufthansa Technik played the leading role in the construction and the development of suitable solutions in cooperation with more than a dozen industrial partners based on the requirements of the German Armed Forces.
