As an Approved Design and Production Organisation (Part 21J and 21G), Sabena technics has been selected to carry out the VIP cabin modification of an Airbus A310 aircraft belonging to the Saudi Arabian private aviation company, Al Atheer.

The cabin refurbishment will be performed at the Group’s completion center in Bordeaux (France) starting the first quarter of 2017. The aircraft’s cabin including luxurious bedroom, bathroom, private office, lounge will undergo extensive soft furnishing replacement, including seat and divan upholstery as well as IFE system upgrades with HD screen.
