New features for Lufthansa Technik nice-system

12th May 2009 - 13:43 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lufthansa Technik (LHT) has used the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva to present new features of its inflight entertainment and cabin management system "nice" (networked integrated cabin equipment).

The latest developments all focus on new ways to control all the different systems in the cabin of VIP and executive aircraft.

For passengers who like to use an integrated control solution, Lufthansa Technik has upgraded the nice-system with an improved wireless system controller. Responding to customer demand, this handheld touchscreen device now features a coloured graphical user interface.

The new wireless system controller, while not in use, can now be mounted in four different cradles that safely keep the device in place and also recharge it. Fixed versions to ones that retract into the aircraft's furniture are available for full flexibility. On tables or walls, on drawers or wardrobes as well as on pop-up side-ledges or credenzas, specific cradle solutions with magnetic latches allow the device to be mounted in nearly all kinds of areas.

Lufthansa Technik also has a solution for passengers who prefer using their own personalised control device instead of the wireless and wired nice-controllers. All typical IFE and CMS functions of the cabin interior can now be controlled from an iPod or iPhone, for example lighting levels and audio or video programs. The required software will be available for download and enables the passenger's mobile device with most features of the wireless system controller.

LHT has also announced that the nice-system is now available for retrofit to customers operating Bombardier Global and Challenger business jets. At EBACE, Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services (LBAS) signed an agreement with its major shareholder Lufhansa Technik to offer nice-installations to its customers in Europe, Middle East, Africa and CIS.
