Lufthansa Technik intoduces new cabin monument for Airbus A320 family
Lufthansa Technik AG and Diehl Aerosystems are introducing an entirely new development in cabin monuments for the Airbus A320 family called “High-Density Solution”. The two companies have managed to save up to 150 kilograms of weight by combining the aft galley and an accessibly designed dual lavatory facility in a single cabin element. Besides, space is created for a minimum of six additional passenger seats without a change in seat spacing, increasing the capacity of the A320 up to 186 seats.
With the help of the newly designed video display system, it is possible for the first time to do without the cabin crew seat in the rear part of the cabin, which was earlier required to guarantee direct view. This expensive, difficult and maintenance-intensive installation can now be omitted finally.
Depending on the chosen configuration, the High-Density Solution monument can hold up to nineteen standard container and eight half-size trolleys in the galley area while still offering space for all the coffee machines and ovens. USB ports for charging are also installed.
“This product enables a greatly improved utilization of the cabin with just a minimum amount of modification work,” says Oliver Rodrigues, the sales manager responsible for High-Density Solution in the Aircraft Modification department at Lufthansa Technik. “That’s why we are also offering the product in the form of a post-delivery modification right from the start.”
Technical business administration specialist Oliver Rodrigues will beat the Lufthansa Technik stand (Hall 6, Booth 6B80) at the Aircraft Interiors Expo from 4–6 April creating opportunity to see and thoroughly test High-Density Solution.
