It’s a privilege that K5 selected our engineering and completion once more.  We look forward to continue and extending our excellent relationship with K5-Aviation.

“We are very honoured with this contract award and the fact that it will be the first Airbus ACJ319neo to be completed in the world and we have been selected to execute the project on behalf of K5-Aviation. The state-of-the-art cabin interior will express superb style and include the very latest in IFE and Communications. The heritage of our company will be used once again to serve an impressive end-result.
