As part of the new agreement, Satair will perform Supplier Support Conditions on FACC’s behalf related to covering the spares related activities.

Matt Jessee, Head of OEM Business Development, Satair, said: ”We are pleased to bring the many benefits of low weight and high reliability through FACC’s products to our airline customers worldwide to help give their passengers the luxury of roomier overhead bins and ambient ceiling panels.”

Besides furnishing ceiling panels that illuminate the cabin with ambient LED light, the overhead stowage compartments covered by the agreement provide 40% more space. Specifically, the Airspace XL bins, the largest overhead stowage compartments in the short and medium-haul class, can hold up to 60% more luggage - eight pieces of hand luggage instead of the previous five, measuring 61 x 40.6 x 25.4 cm.

Andreas Furthmayr, Vice President Cabin Interiors Program, FACC, added: “By using innovative fiber composite materials and new manufacturing technologies, we are able to create products for the aircraft cabin that contribute to consistent weight optimisation. We are excited to work with Satair on bringing our innovative solutions to airlines across the world.”
