VIP Completions’ clients choose ‘redecoration over renovation’
VIP Completions reports more clients are opting to update soft goods rather than extend downtime with a full refurbishment.
Known as a “soft goods refresh” project, the work encompasses all upholsteries, including carpets, seat covers and curtains, plus cushions and blankets. VIP offers a selection of designers, brands, fabrics, leathers and colour schemes.
Ben Shirazi, president, VIP Completions said: “We are seeing more and more clients who want to refresh their aircraft interiors without necessarily undertaking the hard work and extended downtime that usually comes with a full-scale refurbishment. To use a homeowners’ metaphor, it’s like choosing redecoration over renovation.”
The VIP Completions team is known for large-scale interior and exterior aircraft refurbishment projects of which soft goods usually comprise an element.
“We’re best known for big refurb projects but we’ve always been very good at the delicate touches too. Our team invests the same high degree of attention and care into all projects, regardless of scope. Aircraft owners wanting to update decors may benefit greatly from a refresh project that is comparatively quick and easy, while having a major positive impact on their enjoyment of the in-flight experience,” adds Shirazi.
On the back of the success of recent deliveries, VIP is focusing on long-range to large business aircraft including Bombardier Global and Challenger series, Gulfstream G500 and G400 series, and Dassault Falcon 7X, 900 and 2000 series.
