Lufthansa Technik AG (Lufthansa Technik) has revealed fist glimpses of its design for a government cabin for the smallest Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) type, the TwoTwenty. The new cabin will target both governments as well as military operators and MedEvac organisations, the latter being in high demand at present.

The Lufthansa Technik design can equip the ACJ TwoTwenty with divisible areas for work (two passengers), conferencing (seven passengers) and even sleeping for political dignitaries, offering a high level of comfort and functionality, plus security and privacy. Additionally, the standard configuration will include a large delegation area consisting of twelve Premium Economy Class and 20 Economy Class seats. In total, 41 passengers can travel in that configuration, appreciably more than on conventional business jets at comparable prices.

In the MedEvac configuration, up to eight stretchers can be installed for transporting lightly and moderately injured/ill patients, or two new-generation Patient Transport Units (PTU NG) for intensive care patients. Mixed configurations with stretchers and PTU NGs are also possible. With the additional tanks of the ACJ variant, the Lufthansa Technik-equipped A220 configuration will provide a range of up to 5,650 nautical miles (10,460 kilometres).

“With its cabin dimensions, the ACJ TwoTwenty represents an optimal platform for the most diverse manifestations of future government and special mission aircraft, at the price of significantly smaller and less flexible aircraft types,” explained Wieland Timm, Head of Sales for Special Mission Aircraft at Lufthansa Technik. “With our expertise both in the field of VIP completion but also in the field of special mission modifications, we are able to reflect even the high demands of governments or armed forces in this type of aircraft, and to do so highly individually. With this initial concept as a basis, we are therefore eager to start talking to the first potential customers very soon.”
