Sabena Technics has been selected to carry out the VIP cabin modification of an Airbus A310 belonging to the Saudi Arabian private aviation company Al Atheer, it announced on the eve of MEBAA in Dubai.

The refurbishment will be performed at the group’s completion center in Bordeaux, starting in the first quarter of 2017. The aircraft’s cabin will undergo extensive soft furnishing replacement, including seat and divan upholstery as well as IFE system upgrades.

In addition, heavy maintenance C-checks will be carried out on-site, enabling teams to work simultaneously to ensure delivery within three months.

“Thanks to our large range of capabilities, our customer will benefit from a complete turnkey program with a single interface for design, material, systems as well as associated EASA STC,” says Pascal Jallier, vice-president of VIP programmes at Sabena Technics. “We are confident that our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen will be able to meet this tight schedule and deliver a cabin to the highest business aviation standards.”
