Lufthansa Technik has completed the required cabin installations on the first Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 and received the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) allowing the aircraft to enter scheduled service.
“A total of 20 employees from our team worked with colleagues from Munich, Hamburg and Frankfurt on the aircraft over the past three
weeks,” explained Sven Pawliska, head of long-haul aircraft maintenance at Lufthansa Technik. “The installation of the premium economy class and new self-service racks in the business class were among the upgrades that are most visible to passengers.”
Engineers from Lufthansa Technik’s Munich and Frankfurt offices were involved. Over 1,700 hours were logged in completing the work.
