Luxury A220 cabin concept developed by Lufthansa Technik

SkyRetreat creates a "barefoot experience" for passengers

Lufthansa Technik is showing visitors to the Monaco Yacht Show renderings of a cabin design called SkyRetreat, for an A220.

“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,” said a release from Lufthansa Technik. “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.

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 . This multifunctional element allows flexible utilization in any direction; a DJ console can be switched into a catering buffet or a gaming interface.

"With its immersive Observation Deck and technical features, SkyRetreat provides a revolution when it comes to offering a unique and pure flying experience,” said Wieland Timm, Senior Director Sales, VIP and Special Mission Aircraft at Lufthansa Technik. “Tailoring the concept to the 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."

The Monaco Yacht Show runs through September 28. #MYS2019
