German cabin completion company Lufthansa Technik (Booth H71) announced its Skyretreat cabin interior concept for the Airbus ACJ220 this week at EBACE 2019. Skyretreat is a departure for the company, offering a VIP cabin that discreetly integrates technologies from a 4K roll-up display and smart-touch surfaces and includes an observation lounge that the company is keeping under wraps (the full design will be revealed in September at the Monaco Yacht Show).

"Although the A220 represents the new entry level of the Airbus corporate jet portfolio, it provides an incredible amount of space for VIP interiors," said Wieland Timm, senior director of sales, VIP and special mission aircraft at Lufthansa Technik. "Our Skyretreat concept makes optimum use of this spacious cabin and its technical features will provide our customers with a whole new sense of space and a unique travel experience."

The company supports the Airbus 220 family with a comprehensive portfolio of services, ranging from line maintenance and component services to engine services for its Pratt & Whitney 1500 geared turbofan engines.

Also at the company's EBACE booth is Lufthansa Technik's debut VIP chair in a fully functional version. The chair is designed by Italian aircraft interior specialist Iacobucci HF Aerospace. The two companies announced Wednesday that they have reached an agreement on the integration of the chair family into Iacobucci's cabin seating portfolio. The seat is ETSO-certified for 9gs to 16gs and can be installed in any cabin, narrowbody or widebody. 

"The chair is one of the most advanced VIP aircraft seats available," said Lucio Iacobucci, president and CEO of Iacobucci HF Aerospace. "It offers solutions for first-class airline cabins, as well," he continued.
