Luftwaffe to get A321neo’s

Lufthansa Technik VIP & Special Mission Arcraft Services are to equip a pair of A321neo’s with modular transport for troops, medevac, or emergency passenger transport.

The aircraft will be capable of 18 different modular configurations. 136-163 passengers are possible, or six intensive car medevac units, or up to 12 seriously ill but non-intensive evacuees, are examples of what’s possible. A mix of all three is also viable.

The two aircraft, will be operated by the Federal Ministry of Defence’s Special Air Mission Wing, and are scheduled to arrive at LHT’s Hamburg base in August and October 2021. Delivery to the Luftwaffe is planned in 2022.
