Altitude Aerospace wins second VIP completion


Company to outfit BBJ

Altitude Aerospace Interiors has landed its second VIP aircraft
completion contract which will see it outfit a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ)
VIP aircraft.

The client will take delivery of the brand new aircraft later this
year and it’s expected to arrive at Altitude’s facilities early next year. The
Altitude team will then spend nearly a year fitting it out with a
luxury bespoke interior.

Altitude is an Air New Zealand subsidiary and will work with Air New
Zealand Technical Operations to install the customised interior. A dedicated
VIP team of experienced Air New Zealand
technicians and Altitude engineers will manage the complex job of installing
full avionic, entertainment, electrical and environmental systems onto the

Altitude general manager Michael Pervan
says “Obviously contracts involving assets of this value take a lot of leg work
to secure. The customer needs to be satisfied their chosen partner can
deliver the highest quality product, on time and on budget.  We’ve been
working closely with this client since last year, including building a private
jet interior mock up to showcase Altitude’s skill in producing the sort of high
quality finishes and attention to detail this market expects.”

“We’re confident the combined knowledge of Altitude’s engineering design
excellence and Air New Zealand’s B737
experience will produce a final product the customer will be delighted with.”

This is Altitude’s second major VIP aircraft fit out contract.  An
Asian based customer has already engaged Altitude to undertake a similar scope
of work on its new BBJ aircraft.  Last year Altitude also secured several
smaller refurbishment and maintenance projects for VIP jets.

“Securing these smaller contracts as well two major completion contracts
is critical to building Altitude’s brand and reputation in the VIP completion
market.  We have carved a niche for ourselves as one of only a handful of
facilities in the world able to undertake this type of specialised work.” say
Head of Commercial – VIP Aircraft, Matthew Woollaston.
