Lufthansa Technik has re-delivered the second Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) to Royal Jet, a VVIP charter operator in the Middle East.

Like the first aircraft, which was re-delivered in October, the second completion was finished on time after just nine months at Lufthansa Technik’s Hamburg location.

The unique and innovative cabin was designed by New York based designer Edése Doret and is characterised by a clear, minimalist esthetic style, equally combining geometric shapes and organic structures.

The two aircraft also set new standards in the area of connectivity. They are the first BBJs worldwide to be fitted with the Ka-band antenna system as part of their initial completion. The new system allows high-speed Internet and TV connections just like at home.

Amongst other features, both jet cabins include a bedroom, two fully-featured bathrooms and two VIP lounge areas. Overall, the aircraft are designed for 34 passengers.

Because both BBJs require commercial approval as charter aircraft, the strictest approval requirements had to be fulfilled in terms of their completion.
