SR Technics upgrades Virgin Atlantic A330-200 cabins

Swiss maintenance provider SR Technics has reconfigured the cabins of four Airbus A330-200s for Virgin Atlantic.

The project included installation of business and premium economy seats, in-flight entertainment equipment and a customised trolley stowage unit on each aircraft, says SR Technics.

All four airliners were previously in the fleet of now-defunct German carrier Air Berlin, Cirium's Fleets Analyzer shows.

Virgin Atlantic's head of cabin product and maintenance, Rick Daniels, describes the cabin retrofit project as a "very successful programme… to improve our customer proposition on these aircraft".

Noting that SR Technics developed supplemental type certificates for the installation, Daniels adds: "They achieved this in extremely challenging timeframes to a very high standard, and on cost.

"We are extremely pleased with the outcome and look forward to working with SR Technics on similar projects in the future."

Virgin Atlantic has been an SR Technics customer for nearly 30 years, the MRO provider notes.

Fleets Analyzer indicates that Virgin Atlantic and subsidiary Virgin Atlantic International each operates two of the A330-200s.

The second paragraph has been updated to clarify that premium rather than standard economy seats have been installed as part of the cabin reconfiguration programme
