Lufthansa Technik AG has modified the first VIP aircraft, an Airbus A340, with the fastest internet connection currently available on the market, the so-called Ka-band satellite communication technology. Lufthansa Technik is the first MRO company in Europe to receive the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from EASA to install Ka-band antenna systems on an Airbus A340 aircraft. After successfully installing such a system on an A319 as well, Lufthansa Technik now holds STCs for Airbus A320 family and A340 aircraft. In addition, Lufthansa Technik will also receive STCs for Boeing 737BBJ and Airbus A330 before the end of 2016. The STC serves to verify that the modifications to an aircraft conform to the design specifications stipulated by EASA.
