AMAC Aerospace, Basel announces that a Boeing 747-8 BBJ will undergo a re-configuration of the cabin and an update of the whole interior with the latest generation technology.
The cabin of the jumbo jet will be re-configured and the aircraft will undergo a 72-month-check in parallel. To equip the aircraft with the latest technology, AMAC Aerospace will install a Ka-Band system with an already existing STC and will upgrade the In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system. This will ensure that AMAC’s client will have the very latest technology updates on their Boeing 747-8 BBJ and enjoy an incomparable connectivity on-board of the aircraft.
“We are very proud to have been awarded with this big project on the Boeing 747-8 BBJ. We appreciate the trust of our customers for our expertise in widebody aircraft. Our engineering skills empower us to install and upgrade the latest technology to customers’ fullest satisfaction”, said Eric Hoegen, Director Completion Sales & Key Account Management, AMAC Aerospace.
