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. Design will be contemporary with some Arabic inspirations and a high degree of contrast in the colors. In addition, neavy maintenanca C-checks will be carried out on-site enabling teams to work simultaneously to ensure delivery within three months.

We are confident that our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen will be able to meet this tight schedule and deliver a cabin to the highest business aviation standards”.
