Lufthansa Technik designs government cabin for ACJ TwoTwenty

Lufthansa Technik AG today unveiled a first glimpse on the design for
a government cabin based on the smallest Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ)
type. The design for the ACJ TwoTwenty is aimed specifically at
government and military operators who, on the one hand, attach great
importance to high functionality of the interior and, on the other
hand, need to perform other specialized tasks with their aircraft.
The best example of this is the MedEvac (Medical Evacuation) role,
which is currently in particularly high demand. Just as for
conventional delegation transport, Lufthansa Technik’s interior also
offers a highly customizable solution for this.

The design equips the ACJ TwoTwenty, for example, with divisible
areas for working (2 passengers), conferencing (7 passengers) and
even sleeping for political dignitaries, ensuring a high level of
comfort and functionality as well as security and privacy. In
addition, the standard configuration includes a large delegation area
consisting of twelve Premium Economy Class and 20 Economy Class
seats. Altogether, 41 passengers can travel in this configuration,
significantly more than on conventional business jets at comparable

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 kilometers).

“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.”
