Lufthansa Technik has pre-launched a VIP business class cabin design for Boeing BBJ 777-9 jets.
The design utilises the space available on the aircraft, formerly known as BBJ 777X, Lufthansa saying it “prioritises versatility and multifunctionality”.
The cabin design is the first of its kind to be developed using native aircraft data as provided by Boeing ensuring feasibility of the design, as dimensions and space shown are acurate.
The firm said: “The design showcases an impressive array of stunning features. It furthermore maximizes space and comfort, and incorporates traditional elements of Middle Eastern cultural heritage with a modern twist.”
Jan Grube, sales director in VIP and special mission aircraft services at Lufthansa Technik, said: “We are thrilled to unveil first insights into this new VIP cabin design for the BBJ 777-9.
“Our team’s mission was to create a cabin that is both functional and beautiful, while also meeting the unique needs of our VIP clients in the Middle East. We are confident that this cabin design will set a new standard for VIP aviation, and we look forward to bringing it to market.”
A VVIP section at the front of the cabin offers a private bedroom that is expandable. detailed designs of the bedroom will be revealed later this year.
A spacious office and reception area divides the private section from the remaining areas of the aircraft. The cabin also boasts a large sitting room, with a design that flows throughout the entire space.
The rear of the cabin has been designed to transport entourage delegations to cater for the needs of official missions.
A special light and window shade concept has been implemented throughout the cabin, giving passengers the feeling of being in their personal living room.
More areas of the concept will be presented during 2023. An animated film and first visual material will be on display by Lufthansa Technik at booth (#H72) at this week’s EBACE exhibition in Geneva.
