Cabin interior highlights include an exclusive entry way into the private suite, a comfortable master suite and a luxurious bathroom. A cabin management system will be installed to allow complete control over the custom mood lights and high definition large format TV screens, via an integrated iPad. A humidification system and sound dampening package will be included to enhance passenger comfort throughout the flight.
AERIA’s design team will be using its newly acquired 3D printer to create cabin features.
The aircraft is scheduled to arrive in AERIA’s remodelled hangar for cabin completion in the third quarter of 2014, with redelivery planned in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Ron Soret, vice president and general manager of completions at AERIA, said: “We are honoured by the customer’s vote of confidence, entrusting their aircraft to AERIA.
“At AERIA, our objective is to have our customers walk into private interiors which have been specially designed and crafted for them, where they feel ‘at home’ while in the air. Like all our VIP completion projects, our design team will work closely with the customer to understand their lifestyle, tastes and preferences, to create a luxurious and relaxing living space in the aircraft. With a highly experienced team, we are confident of delivering a delightful cabin experience for our customer.”
