Singapore, 20 June 2017 – ST Aerospace’s VIP Completion Brand, AERIA Luxury Interiors (AERIA), achieved a new milestone when it redelivered a VIP wide-body aircraft to an undisclosed customer this month. This is the first full VIP wide-body aircraft completion AERIA has redelivered since it was set up in 2012, and the second full cabin completion programme for AERIA.
The refurbished wide-body aircraft has a full VIP interior of approximately 3,000 square feet that features a contemporary style. The main living/dining area includes a conference table which seats nine comfortably, sprawling divans and a large HD (High Definition) monitor, while the main stateroom encompasses an executive lavatory complete with a double vanity sink and shower.
The interior configuration also has two smaller dining areas, two lounge areas and five additional bedroom suites each outfitted with their own lavatories. The crew lounge can sleep six comfortably so as to better accommodate an adequately staffed service team. Other features include a digital entertainment system that boasts of multiple HD monitors and fully integrated Cabin Management System In-Flight Entertainment, customisable RGB (red, green and blue) lighting, and a humidification and zonal drying system to make the flying experience even more luxurious.
“Since its inception, AERIA has built up a strong track record in delivering highly individualised cabin experience for customers by leveraging its strong in-house design and outfitting expertise. Our latest VIP completion is particularly impressive because the entire 3,000 square foot interior of the wide-body aircraft is fully furnished with VIP features. We are incredibly proud to have completed this project while adhering to a tight timeline and high quality standards that AERIA has earned a reputation for over the short five years of being in business,” said Mr Ron Soret, AERIA’s Vice President and General Manager of Completions.
Specialising in the completion and refurbishment of both Airbus and Boeing jets, AERIA is located in San Antonio, Texas – the birthplace of large aircraft VIP completions – where it has access to skilled craftsmen, a pool of highly trained engineering talent as well as a cluster of supporting businesses in the region. It recently completed an expansion of its facilities with a new cabinet and upholstery shop as well as a new design showroom that showcases its wide array of solutions in VIP completion.
