For the second consecutive year, Airbus has selected Lufthansa Technik as the “best VIP cabin outfitter” for the interior work done at its completion center in Hamburg, Germany, and at BizJet International, its U.S. subsidiary in Tulsa, Okla.

The award recognizes the best of the Airbus-approved outfitting centers in 2012. In accepting it, Dr. Hans Schmitz, Lufthansa Technik senior v-p of VIP and executive jet solutions, made a point of thanking all employees “within our VIP business for their permanent engagement and discipline.”

The award came after several months of extensive evaluations by Airbus of individual completion centers in its network as part of turnkey contracts maintained with those centers. Among considerations were time, cost, quality commitments and technical planning.
