AAR completes aircraft cabin modifications for Bhutan national carrier
AAR has successfully completed a cabin modification project in a tight timeframe on three Airbus A319-100s flown by Drukair, the national carrier of the Royal Government of Bhutan. Delivering an integrated, turnkey solution, AAR replaced the business and economy class seats, installed additional passenger seating in economy class and received design approvals from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Europe’s airworthiness authority. AAR’s services included design, engineering, certification and supply of seats and cabin parts, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) touch labor for the aircraft reconfiguration. AAR was able to meet Drukair’s tight schedule, completing the modification of the three aircraft in eight weeks.
