Lufthansa Technik has started the VIP cabin completion of a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 2 for Freestream Aircraft Limited (BBJ) 2. The ultra-modern interior has been designed by renowned designer Marc Newson and his London-based Aviation Design Studio MNAerospace Ltd.
The hand-over of the aircraft is scheduled for mid of 2013.
The ultra-modern cabin of the BBJ 2 will have, amongst other things, cooking facilities for an on-board chef, a bedroom and an entertainment room which will offer the best possible noise protection. Additionally, a bathroom will be integrated with a steam shower. A particular challenge will be the integration of an emergency medical services set under the bed.
Lufthansa Technik will install the latest generation of its successful nice® HD cabin management and in-flight entertainment system on board. nice® HD will offer Live-TV, GSM, high-speed internet access and video-on-demand. The technical experts of Lufthansa Technik are developing a software which enables the future customer to control the complete nice® HD system with his personal smart phone device.
