The perfect cabin for every role
Cabin concepts for the Airbus A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT)
Based on the A330-200 airliner, the Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) is originally a tanker aircraft whose main deck is freely usable except for two large racks with tank equipment in the front area. As delivered by the manufacturer Airbus, the aircraft is equipped with economy seating only. Lufthansa Technik has developed four different cabin configurations for this aircraft. Designed for realistic deployment scenarios, they enable a stronger and improved use of the MRTT.
Four layouts for four use cases
Lufthansa Technik is presenting cabin designs and layouts for four operational profiles. The "State" and "Governor" variants are designed for the transport of head of states, government members and delegations. The "Rescue" version has been developed for the execution of humanitarian aid flights and medical evacuation transports. The fourth design concept, "Trooper", is optimized for long-distance passenger or troop transport and offers maximum capacity in different classes. The basic concepts have been optimized for the different application versions, but adaptations always remain possible to suit the special needs of customers.
Low engineering efforts and costs
All cabin variants for the A330 MRTT were developed in cooperation with military services and experts. By utilizing concepts that are already completely developed, the effort and expense of engineering and installation are kept as low as possible, so that an attractive layout can also be offered at a competitive price. In addition, all of these functional cabins were designed with an eye to future maintenance needs and upgrades.
Complete technical services
Besides the different cabin configurations, the latest generation Multi-Role Tanker Transport also requires a partner with unrivaled know-how when it comes to technical operation – a partner like Lufthansa Technik who understands governmental requirements, has extensive organizational and personnel approvals and comprehensive technical competence. Lufthansa Technik offers a complete portfolio of technical services for the Airbus A330 MRTT, covering the entire life cycle of the aircraft.
