EUROAIRPORT, 16 November 2017

A new contract for an extensive maintenance package in conjunction with a KA band installation and an IFE upgrade on an Airbus A330-200 aircraft has been awarded to AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland.

The aircraft will undergo a 24/48- months inspection at AMAC Aerospace. A multiple STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) for the installation of the KA band has already been developed by AMAC’s in-house engineering department and will be applied on the KA band installation of the A330-200 aircraft. The KA band system offers broadband connectivity to use internet services as seamless as passengers are used to having it on ground.

In addition, AMAC’s engineers and technicians will perform an IFE upgrade on the Airbus aircraft. The upgrade includes the installation of state-of-the art technologies such as the upgrade of the cabin monitors from 15 to 43 inch with ultra HD definition (4K technology) in conjunction with internet streaming and command via mobile devices among others.

A number of cabin rectifications and repairs shall be performed in parallel to the maintenance input at AMAC Aerospace’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.

“We are proud to being awarded by our esteemed customer for performing the extensive maintenance package in combination with the upgrades and cabin works. It is an honor that the owner of the A330-200 aircraft appreciates our broad service portfolio and high quality standards.” said Mr. Eric Hoegen, Sales & Key Account Manager of AMAC Aerospace.
