Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has designed an interior cabin for the Airbus ACJ TwoTwenty aimed specifically at government and military customers who are looking for a long-range aircraft that is larger than traditional business jets so that heads of state and high-ranking politicians can be transported with their delegations. At the same time, many government customers are looking for aircraft that can also be rapidly adapted to other special roles, notably that of aeromedical evacuation. The company (Booth H72) released images of such cabin designs this week at EBACE.

While the interior can be tailored to requirements, the standard layout offers a two-passenger working area, seven-person conference area, and sleeping arrangements for VIPs. A delegation area provides 12 premium economy and 20 economy class seats. A typical layout accommodates up to 41 passengers.

For secondary aeromedical missions, the cabin can be reconfigured with eight stretchers or two intensive care patient transport units, or a mix thereof. The additional fuel tanks of the ACJ TwoTwenty provide a 5,650-nm range.

At EBACE 2023, LHT is showing a model of an ACJ TwoTwenty cabin in the company’s VIP “SkyRetreat” configuration, which includes a flight deck observation area. For now, though, Comlux has been selected by Airbus to exclusively outfit the first 15 privately-owned ACJ TwoTwentys.
