SR Technics to help Edelweiss upgrade another four aircraft

Posted 17 January 2017 · Add Comment

SR Technics, that has offices in Dubai, has announced it has signed a contract with Edelweiss Air, the Swiss leisure airline, to upgrade the cabin experience on four of the carrier's A340-300s.

All work will take place in the MRO’s Center of Excellence for Cabin Modifications in Zurich over the next two years.

The first of the four aircraft arrived at the SR Technics facilities in October 2016, and it took off after 37 days of refurbishment to Cape Town, providing a new inflight experience to passengers. During the project, the aircraft went through a complete interior redesign including the installation of new seats, galleys and also new / modified lavatories. A programmable LED mood light system was also installed to improve the cabin illumination. The renewed cabin comes with three classes – economy max, business, and economy – designed with leisure travelers’ needs in mind. In addition, travelers will benefit from the Panasonic eXLite inflight entertainment system, which offers audio and video on demand as well as games and other entertainment to enhance the long-haul flight experience.

“We are delighted to continue our journey with Edelweiss,” said Michael Sattler, Head of Aircraft Services. “The successful completion of the previous six A320 aircraft demonstrates our commitment to deliver on our promise. As a leading cabin modifications provider, we aim to understand the specific needs of each customer, and we are fully committed to go the extra mile to meet these needs.”
