The expanding commercial aviation travel market in Eastern Europe has led to the rapid growth of airlines. As an airline with aspirations to become a full-service premium carrier, the customer presented GVH Aerospace with the challenge of converting its Boeing 767 fleet into a 3-class configuration. This required a full interior reconfiguration involving relocation of monuments, new modified first and business class seats, integration of AVOD inflight entertainment systems, mood lighting installation, and design of seat interface pallets between the VIP first class suite to the 767 seat tracks. The design task required tight coordination with the nominated MRO to ensure timely completion to a compressed schedule.
GVH responded to the aggressive schedule by designing and supporting the manufacture of all required parts, and deployed an on-site engineering team to support the MRO and the customer during the installation and reconfiguration phase. This resulted in a significantly enhanced passenger experience for the airline’s transatlantic operation.
