"Lconnect" by Lufthansa Technik offers high-performance connectivity as a package

Eight aircraft currently being equipped per week
"Lconnect – Your world of connectivity": Lufthansa Technik is currently equipping eight Airbus A320 aircraft per week with the latest Ka-band technology. Only four days lie between a traditional commercial aircraft and a flying communication center with broadband connectivity.

"With ‘Lconnect', we are benefiting more than ever from our extensive expertise and the fact that we have all the required technologies and disciplines, including the entire logistics, in our own hands," says Lukas Bucher, Head of Connectivity at Lufthansa Technik. "Together with our Original Equipment Innovation division, we even produce many of the necessary systems ourselves. That is a significant advantage when it comes to providing airlines with customized consulting on how to introduce connectivity."

With only minor work on the aircraft, "Lconnect" integrates all systems in such a way that no major work on the structure will be required for later advances in technology. The systems are thus prepared for future developments in air-to-ground communications, and the design has been optimized so as to require minimum maintenance. "Our expertise as a production and MRO organization are helpful here as well," Bucher points out.

They have a strong partner in Lufthansa Systems, which delivers parts of the aircraft's IT infrastructure on the basis of its digital BoardConnect platform.

With 15 years of experience in state-of-the-art connectivity under its belt already, Lufthansa Technik is now able to tailor the equipment of even the largest fleets to the customer's individual requirements in the shortest possible time, have that equipment designed by its engineering department and at the same time prepare the productive realization – all the way to certification – within the company's global network.

By putting together entire material kits, up to ten layovers can be completed simultaneously. "The high qualification of our electronics technicians and mechanics at all locations and our logistics network lays the foundation for this," says Bucher.

Aerospace engineer Lukas Bucher and his team will be at the Lufthansa Technik booth (Hall 6, Booth 6B80) at the Aircraft Interiors Expo from April 4 to 6.
