SR Technics to upgrade Edelweiss‘ A340s cabin
SR Technics, an MRO service provider based in Switzerland, announced that 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 MRO company said that 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. During the project, the aircraft went through a complete interior redesign including the installation of new seats, galleys and also new/ modified lavatories. In addition, the aircraft will feature Panasonic eXLite inflight entertainment system.
Michael Sattler, Head of SR Technics Aircraft Services, said: “We are delighted to continue our journey with Edelweiss. 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.”
Lorenz Thöni, CTO at Edelweiss, commented: “The first A340 modification was the biggest project that Edelweiss has carried out to date, and SR Technics has proved yet again that they are the right partner for this kind of project. The team has demonstrated great enthusiasm and flexibility while working against the clock to ensure that the job was completed on time. I would like to warmly thank the entire SR Technics team on behalf of the Edelweiss management.”
