Lufthansa Technik will soon commence a comprehensive cabin modification program on a Boeing BBJ 787-8, which will last approximately two months.
The aircraft belongs to an undisclosed customer and modification is being performed as part of a planned layover at Lufthansa Technik's completion center in Hamburg, Germany.
Lufthansa Technik will further support the aircraft with technical services following the completion of the modification work.
"The modification of this 787 is another milestone in further strengthening our expertise on this aircraft type," said Walter Heerdt, Senior Vice President VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services, Lufthansa Technik.
"In addition to our already existing MRO services for different 787 commercial operators we are now also extending our portfolio for this aircraft model to our VIP business.
This makes Lufthansa Technik the leading provider of technical services for the 787,” he added.
As part of the cabin modification, Lufthansa Technik will work on a special cabin layout; undertake modifications and adjustments of the inflight entertainment system and the communication system, in addition to modifying the crew rest compartments and galley areas for extended needs.
The cabin modification will cater for specific customer requirements and is based on a service bulletin from the aircraft manufacturer.
