Magnetic MRO and Finnair have signed a contract for complete paint work, full interior refurbishment and maintenance of all 12 of the airline’s ATR 72’s operated for Finnair by its partner company Norra.

All 12 of the aircraft will receive full interior refurbishment, which includes the painting of overhead bins, attendant seats, galleys, bin doors, stairs and linings, to achieve a fresh look for the aircraft interior; complete refurbishment of the lavatories, and installing new seats and carpets.

For Magnetic MRO’s Interior team, this project involved producing the largest number of new in-house made details for an aircraft that the company has ever manufactured for a single interior project. This included new kickstrips, stickers, latches and hinges for overhead bins, and other design elements.

“Finnair has exceeded all of our hopes as a customer as they have been very focused on the end result being as close to perfection as possible,” said Magnetic MRO’s Interior Project Manager Pärtel-Peeter Kruuv. “Their attention to detail and strict standards for the interior design of their aircraft has lifted our team into new heights and made us work even harder. This project has been an amazing learning experience and we’re happy to work with an airline so committed to the comfort of their passengers. We hope this is just a kick-off for further design and production projects with our neighbouring flag-carrier.”

In addition to interior refurbishment, Magnetic MRO will be Finnair’s partner for doing maintenance checks and painting their entire ATR fleet. The project is expected to be completed by the end of Q1, 2020.
