No, completely different. Even the soldering pads are on different sides.

Basically you can forget about interchangeable parts in iOS devices expect for a few of them.

Hello,

Unfortunately the lightning connector is soldered onto the logic board on the iPad Air 2 and as such it is not compatible across devices.

If you take a look at the teardown, you will be able to see the issue.
