Fokker Services provides Dash8 100 aircraft interior upgrade
Fokker Services has contracted with a Dash8 100 aircraft operator in the Asia Pacific region for the provision of a comprehensive passenger cabin upgrade package. The upgrade will consist of full refurbishment of the existing passenger cabin sidewall panels, luggage bins and lavatory linings, a noise suppression kit, which will reduce passenger cabin noise levels by up to 3dB using passive measures, photo luminescent escape path markings and LED lighting for both the passenger cabin and lavatories. The upgrade program will cover three aircraft, with Fokker Services responsible for overseeing the engineering, certification, and supply of the relevant kits, as well as the refurbishment of the cabin and lavatory linings at its facilities in the Netherlands. The actual installation shall be done by the customer at their own heavy maintenance facilities during a scheduled check. The first aircraft is scheduled to undergo the upgrade in the middle of 2013 with the other two to follow thereafter.
