Aer Lingus, part of International Airlines Group, has awarded Ras Al Khaimah based Spatial with a contract to upgrade and overhaul their A320 cabin emergency evacuation trainer and A330 door trainer.

The upgrade work is designed to enhance the reliability of the devices through the installation of Spatial’s PLC-based operating system as well as an overhaul of the door mechanisms. Spatial will also install advanced features such as its next-generation cabin visuals system in the device. Spatial has further committed to provide full support for ten years to Aer Lingus.

Marc Van den Broucque, Spatial Managing Director, said: “We have invested significantly in building a reputation with our customers for reliability. We are glad Aer Lingus has recognised this and look forward to serving them over the years to come.”

Eamon Kierans, Head of Training at Aer Lingus, said: “We are delighted to have secured Spatial to perform the upgrade and future support to our cabin training devices. This agreement establishes a ‘solid’ cabin crew training platform for the next 10 years in Aer Lingus.”

Noel Houlihan, Safety Training Officer at Aer Lingus, said: “We chose to complete this project with Spatial as a result of their robust operating system and innovative modern design, which will offer us enhanced reliability into the future. We look forward to bringing added realism to our cabin crew training when this project is complete and we can't wait to introduce our crew to the fantastic Spatial product offering.”
