On the basis of the smallest Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) type, Lufthansa Technik AG showed a preliminary view of the concept for a government cabin. Government and military operators who, on the one hand, place a high value on interior functioning and, on the other hand, need to use their aircraft for additional specialized missions are the target market for the ACJ TwoTwenty design.
The duty of a MedEvac (Medical Evacuation) is the clearest illustration of this, and it is now in very high demand. The interior of Lufthansa Technik also provides a highly adaptable option for this, just like for traditional delegation transport.
The design equips the ACJ TwoTwenty, for example, with divisible areas for working (2 passengers), conferencing (7 passengers) and even sleeping for political dignitaries, ensuring a high level of comfort and functionality as well as security and privacy. In addition, the standard configuration includes a large delegation area consisting of twelve Premium Economy Class and 20 Economy Class seats. Altogether, 41 passengers can travel in this configuration, significantly more than on conventional business jets at comparable prices.
In the MedEvac configuration, up to eight stretchers can be installed for transporting lightly and moderately injured/ill patients, or two new-generation Patient Transport Units (PTU NG) for intensive care patients. Mixed configurations with stretchers and PTU NGs are also possible. With the additional tanks of the ACJ variant, the Lufthansa Technik-equipped A220 configuration will provide a range of up to 5,650 nautical miles (10,460 kilometers).
