Lufthansa is to fit Sextant Avionique's multi-mode receivers (MMRs) to its entire fleet of Airbus Industrie aircraft.

Sextant says the German carrier will retrofit its existing A340s with the Sextant MMRs from this year, and will make it standard equipment on all newly delivered aircraft.

The MMR offers Category III instrument landing system and global position system navigation functions. It can also be upgraded to include new precision landing capabilities.
