Jet Aviation announced the on-time redelivery of its first VVIP cabin interior on a Boeing 787-8 aircraft to an undisclosed customer. The aircraft is notable for its low weight and low cabin acoustic values.

The Boeing 787 was delivered green to Jet Aviation’s Completions Center in Basel in October 2019 and was recently redelivered to the customer on schedule. The cabin interior was designed by an external design studio and included a number of complex features, all engineered and produced in-house at Jet Aviation.

“The exceptionally low cabin noise Jet Aviation achieved on this aircraft is the culmination of long-term collaborative research and development between us, universities, OEMs and partner companies,” said Enrique Garrido Bosch, completions program director for the program. “We’re delighted to see our work lead the industry in sound space, and our customer was particularly delighted with his environment of calm. We are very excited about the possibilities for further innovation to develop and shape sound experiences.”

“The company drew on years of advanced preparation and research from its team of in-house artisans to incorporate several new design elements into the interior,” said Jeremie Caillet, SVP Regional Operations EMEA. “We delivered the aircraft on time and under target weight using our existing EASA STC for certifying interior installations on Boeing 787 aircraft — the first STC of this kind to be granted to a completion center. It is truly one of the most beautiful and technically impressive cabins we have ever redelivered in Basel. I couldn’t be prouder of how the team embraced every challenge and ultimately positioned us strongly for future 787 completions.”
