Lufthansa Technik re-delivers second completed BBJ to Royal Jet

Posted 1 December 2016 · Add Comment

The completion specialists at Lufthansa Technik have re-delivered the second BBJ to Abu Dhabi private jet company Royal Jet,

 

Like the first aircraft, which was re-delivered in October, the
second completion was finished on time after just nine months at
Lufthansa Technik's Hamburg location. The unique and innovative cabin
was designed by New York based designer Edése Doret.
According to the German completions house the cabin design is
“characterised by a clear, minimalist esthetic style, equally
combining geometric shapes and organic structures. The dominant cabin
elements were produced from modern materials, such as genuine carbon
fiber as well as metal and plastic surfaces.”

A highlight of the interior design is the starry sky, consisting of
approx. 15,000 light points running across the ceiling throughout the
entire cabin. A variety of different lighting scenarios including a
starry sky can be illustrated with "moodlight" elements and fibre
optic technology.

The two aircraft also set new standards in the area of connectivity.
They are the first BBJs worldwide to be fitted with the Ka-band
antenna system as part of their initial completion. The new system
allows high-speed Internet and TV connections just like at home. The
integrated "niceview mobile" flight information system from Lufthansa
Technik supplies passengers with the widest variety of travel
information. The installation of a fully digital mobile phone network
(GSM) also allows use of mobile phones in flight.

Amongst other features, both jet cabins include a bedroom, two
fully-featured bathrooms and two VIP lounge areas. Overall, the
aircraft are designed for 34 passengers.
An easy to maintain cabin and technology design was a key requirement
on the part of the customer. The engineers developed completely new
concepts in order to ensure that maintenance would be as efficient as
with an airliner. For example, the entertainment and communication
system can be replaced in just a few minutes.
