Boeing 737 Fleet LOPA Reconfiguration

Boeing 737 Fleet LOPA Reconfiguration

For many airlines that started operations in developing economies and less mature markets, the limited access to capital markets or the need to control capital risks may mean the airlines can only add capacity gradually and may not be in a position to commit to larger scale fleet orders. The airlines often either purchase the aircraft second-hand or lease the aircraft individually as they become available and as capacity demand grows. Over time, this often results in a fleet of aircraft that are of different cabin configurations.

GVH Aerospace was presented with the challenge of designing a new cabin configuration for the airline’s fleet of 13 Boeing 737-500 aircraft. The airline required a uniform all-economy cabin layout of 126 passengers, plus provisions for bassinets to be installed on the wardrobes and dividers. The fleet of 13 aircraft were in 7 different LOPA configurations. GVH Aerospace rose to the challenge and designed the modification package that allowed the airline to rationalise its fleet into the 126-pax layout, greatly simplifying fleet planning.
