ST Aerospace has signed a cabin reconfiguration agreement with Air Canada for the carrier’s fleet of eight 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 Q1 2017.
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.
George Psycharis, senior director of airframe and engine maintenance at Air Canada, said the decision was influenced by ST Aerospace’s performance with its ongoing airframe maintenance and reconfiguration projects.
