Titan Airways selects Airline Services Limited for Boeing 757 refurbishment
Airline Services Limited (ASL) has signed a contract worth over £400,000 with London-Stansted based Titan Airways to help with the interior refurbishment of a Boeing 757 to an all business class interior.
“We are happy to be working on this project, to bring an enhanced level of comfort and convenience to clients using our business class interior, with Airline Services Ltd. We have worked with ASL on a number of projects and trust them to deliver the high standard of service we expect,” said Alastair Kiernan, commercial director of Titan Airways.
ASL, a leading supplier of aircraft interior and ramp presentation services, which is exhibiting at the Aircraft Interiors Show 2013 in Hamburg this week, is overhauling the seats with the fitting of new seat foams. It is also updating the upholstery in new pale grey, soft leather. The modifications are scheduled for completion this month.
Other refurbishments have been made, such as each seat will have individual power supply sockets and USB ports. The in-seat power system, supplied by Astronics will enable passengers to run and recharge electronic devices such as lap tops, tablets and phones whilst in flight.
The all business class configuration of Titan’s 757 aircraft offers 76 and 80 seat options with both configurations giving passengers a generous 50 inch seat pitch and full recline at each row. The 76 seat configuration allows a versatile and highly popular double club arrangement at the front of the cabin. The new business class seats will also be used in the 757’s split class configuration, offering 40 business class seats with a 41 inch pitch at the front of the aircraft and either 108 or 118 economy class seats at a 31 inch pitch in the main cabin.
