The leading aerospace company FACC taps into new business areas. Particularly noteworthy are the aftermarket services and airline business. Together with Austrian Airlines, an important launch customer, FACC presents its latest product innovation, the “Passenger Luggage Space Upgrade”. This Interiors product as well as the new business segment Aftermarket Services were presented at this year´s Aircraft Interiors Expo – AIX – in Hamburg.

FACC is launching the new business segment Aftermarket Services. The Austrian specialist for innovative lightweight components and systems is basing the novel program on three pillars: Repair, Refurbish and Replace. The three existing divisions - Aerostructures, Engines and Nacelles as well as Cabin Interiors - will be supported with value-added services. "Both the increasing composite share in aircraft and our specific expertise open up great potential in the repair and maintenance business. The 200 percent growth in this area at our US location, moreover, shows us that this is the right step to take", says Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC.

All required approvals, such as EASA.21J for design organizations, AT.21G for production organizations and EASA AT.145 for maintenance organizations as well as FAA and TCCA certifications have already been obtained. The new aftermarket services are offered worldwide, thereby creating greater proximity to customers around the world. In addition to existing well-known OEMs, a new and broader customer base is addressed, which includes airlines, MRO stations, spare parts and service providers as well as other OEMs. The first locations to provide these services are the Group headquarters in Ried, Austria, and the subsidiaries FSI-Montreal in Canada and FSI-Wichita in the USA.

First use at Austrian Airlines 

FACC has been the original component manufacturer and technology partner of all renowned OEMs worldwide for almost 30 years. In addition, FACC provides extensive know-how, flexibility and professional expertise in the design and repair of innovative lightweight components and systems. The latest innovation milestone of FACC in the field of aircraft interior design is the new “Passenger Luggage Space Upgrade”. This Interiors product does not simply improve the look and feel of the upgraded cabin due to the newly designed flaps and latches of overhead stowage compartments; it also boosts its functionality by offering significantly more space whilst saving weight. Last but not least, the cabin doors in a brand new design offer airlines a wide range of customization and branding. Furthermore, this cabin upgrade only takes one night to be completed. 

Austrian Airlines, cooperation partner and launch customer of FACC, was also convinced by the strong arguments and impressive advantages and is therefore starting an upgrade of its A320 Classic Cabins this autumn. In addition to the modern cabin appearance, more stowage space also makes boarding faster.
