For the very first time, Sabena technics has developed an STC to perform cabin modifications on an A350 aircraft belonging to French Blue.
The retrofit program will include complete integration of the 2 classes configuration Premium and Economy seats as well as a brand new In-Flight Entertainment system on a green Airbus A350 aircraft.
As an EASA Part 21J design organization, Sabena technics will provide the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) needed to carry out and certify the aircraft’s modification.
“We would like to thank French Blue for trusting us on this program. The A350 embodies many innovative technologies that our teams have been studying for a while in order to come up with a complete portfolio of solutions for our customers. French Blue can rely on our extensive in-house engineering and manufacturing capabilities to deliver the best cabin.”
said Philippe Rochet, Chief Operating Officer of Sabena technics.
“Working with Sabena technics was for French blue the assurance of a successful cooperation with an aircraft cabin and manufacturing expert. For us, ensuring our passengers the highest level of technology and comfort onboard is a prerequisite for a company proposing a new air travel experience”
said Muriel Assouline, French blue General Manager.
The aircraft is scheduled to arrive in July in Sabena technics’ Maintenance & Engineering facilities in Bordeaux (France) for a one month program.
