Representatives from the media will have the opportunity to take photos and meet the key people behind the »nice« cooperation between Lufthansa Technik and Bombardier.

"Bombardier aircraft are renowned for their impeccable design, superior comfort and their use of the latest advanced technologies, including the »nice« system, which ensures exceptional cabin efficiency," stated Brad Nolen, Vice President, Marketing and Product Strategy, Bombardier Aviation. ‘'Providing instant access to an array of cabin entertainment and connectivity settings, Lufthansa Technik's cutting-edge »nice« system allows for effortless control and elevates the overall in-flight experience of our customers."
