US firm Astronics has been selected by Boeing to provide the passenger service units (PSU) for the 777X.

The contract, subject to the final purchase agreement execution, will see New York-headquartered Astronics be the sole supplier of the PSUs for the aircraft, which Boeing said will include a wider cabin, larger windows, improved architecture and better lighting.

Astronics president and CEO Peter Gundermann said the latest agreement is a continuation of the firm’s “long-standing relationship” with the OEM.

Production on the 777X will begin in 2017 with a scheduled entry into service date of 2020.
