The proliferation of Personal Electronic Devices (PED) is driving the market demand for airlines to provide USB power as a passenger service. This can become a key differentiating factor that provides airlines with a competitive edge in the hyper competitive airline market.
GVH Aerospace, together with Inflight Canada, were contracted by the world’s largest aircraft leasing company to configure a Boeing 767-300 for an European charter airline. This involve converting the existing 2-class 2-3-2 seating configuration into an all economy 2-4-2 layout, removal of the existing IFE system and installed a new Inflight Canada Passenger Service System complete with USB power (PSS+P). In addition to installing a new safety equipment layout, the existing floor path lighting system near the galley was removed and the existing photo luminescent floor path marking system is extended throughout the entire cabin.
GVH Aerospace provided the design, working closely with Inflight Canada and supporting the reconfiguration of the aircraft at the MRO by deploying engineers on-site to resolve installation issues as they arose.
