Open Space concept SkyRetreat provides a new level of freedom for the Airbus A220

  • First unveiling of the entire cabin concept SkyRetreat at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019
  • Unconventional design approach, reduction to the essential
  • Unique Observation Deck for immersive flying experience

For the first time ever Lufthansa Technik presents the full concept of its VIP cabin design SkyRetreat, whose unconventional approach provides travelers with an unseen level of freedom on the occasion of the Monaco Yacht Show 2019,. The design study for the cabin of an Airbus A220 envisions a minimalistic approach based on natural materials and offers an open, versatile place of retreat above the clouds.

The principal idea behind the spacious SkyRetreat design follows a natural look based on authenticity, dominated by its striking wooden floor and the pure and calm design language of the various cabin monuments. The latter´s design, though enriched by a number of modern technical features, never inhibits  the natural feel of the cabin and its  "barefoot experience" for passengers.

The centerpiece of the concept is the Observation Deck that for the first time in VIP aviation extends the passenger cabin seamlessly into the aircraft´s flight deck – allowing all occupants to enjoy unprecedented and totally immersive views of new horizons.

Moreover, the latest high end technologies are discreetly integrated into the cabin´s design – from smart touch surfaces and a distinctive lighting concept to an open deck with a centre buffet as the main element. This multifunctional element allows flexible utilisation in any direction; a  DJ console can be switched into a catering buffet or a gaming interface in seconds – creating an individual way of living on board.

As Wieland Timm, Senior Director Sales, VIP & Special Mission Aircraft at Lufthansa Technik states: "With its immersive Observation Deck and technical features, SkyRetreat provides a  revolution when it comes to offering a unique and pure flying experience. Tailoring the  concept to the Airbus A220, we are targeting an entirely new business section in which especially first time VIP jet owners benefit from this extremly  versatile VIP design for a reasonable investment."

Besides the VIP completion capabilities, Lufthansa Technik already supports the Airbus A220 family with a comprehensive portfolio of services ranging from line maintenance and component services to engine services for its PW1500 geared turbofan engines.

You´ll find us during #MYS2019 from 25th to 28th of September 2019 in our lounge in the Monaco Yacht Club (ground floor, facing in the harbour) or in the BRABUS area of the car deck.
