Singapore Technologies Aerospace (ST Aerospace) has secured a cabin reconfiguration contract with Air Canada, for eight Airbus A330 aircraft.  The first A330 will be inducted in the third quarter of 2016, with the last aircraft targeted for redelivery by the end of 1Q2017.

For each of the eight aircraft, ST Aerospace will be installing additional premium economy seats in the aircraft cabin whilst enlarging the economy class section.  The scope of work will also include the integration of an audio and video on-demand system, and maintenance checks for the entire aircraft fleet.  Upon completion of the prototype aircraft, applications will be submitted for Supplemental Type Certificates from the US Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada Civil Aviation.

“We are pleased to select ST Aerospace for our A330 cabin reconfiguration programme,” said Mr George Psycharis, Senior Director, Airframe & Engine Maintenance of Air Canada.  “ST Aerospace’s performance with our on-going airframe maintenance and reconfiguration projects was a key factor in our selection decision.  We are confident this programme will be equally successful.”

Following the initial contract award in 2013, 12 Boeing 767-300 aircraft have now been redelivered to Air Canada, after a full cabin reconfiguration programme which includes engineering design, modification kit manufacturing, aircraft modification, certification, as well as overall programme management.

“Additional work from a valued existing customer is always a sign of continued trust and confidence, especially in the aviation industry where turnaround time, cost efficiency and aircraft safety are of tantamount importance to airline operators,” said Mr Lim Serh Ghee, President of ST Aerospace.  “For ST Aerospace, this contract award from Air Canada is testament of our fruitful collaboration, especially when it is signed in the midst of the full cabin reconfiguration programme for its other fleet of 22 Boeing 767 aircraft.”

ST Aerospace has completed cabin interior work for more than 170 aircraft.  As a provider of total aviation support, ST Aerospace offers MRO and full turnkey cabin interior solutions, comprising integration of cabin products, seating and wireless IFE solutions, as well as the replacement of monuments.  ST Aerospace’s integrated aviation services help reduce considerable aircraft downtime, thereby increasing operational efficiency for aircraft operators.
