UK-based Mac Interiors is nearing completion of a Boeing 767 cabin upgrade for Nigerian carrier Med-View Airlines.
The project spanned seat modifications, galley and lavatory refurbishment, installation of lighting equipment, surveillance cameras, a GPS system, stowage solutions, cabin dividers and carpets, says Mac Interiors – a subsidiary of Estonian maintenance provider Magnetic MRO.
It adds that the project was its first whole-cabin upgrade, and that the involvement of a "local UK MRO" was a "key enabler" in the effort.
"This co-operation will enable a release of the whole aircraft, unlike the previous times when Mac Interiors was limited to kit supplies," it notes.
Magnetic MRO manufactured soft furnishings and modified interior kits for the project.
Mac Interiors' vice-president of sales Rubin Flower describes the effort as a "benchmark project" for the company. "This has been a very exciting and educational challenge for us. The significance of such an experience is immeasurable."
The company says it is "getting ready" to release the aircraft.
Med-View chief executive Alhaji Muneer Bankole states: "We are about to conclude a long-term collective agreement and looking forward to working together again for future projects."
Flight Fleets Analyzer lists Med-View's sole 767-300 – built in 1995 and managed by AerCap – as being in storage. The carrier has three 737 Classics and a 737-800 in service.
