Satair, an Airbus Services company and leader in the commercial aerospace aftermarket, and FACC, a manufacturer of advanced aircraft components and systems for the global aerospace industries, have signed their first agreement. The multi-year agreement covers the global exclusive distribution of Airspace XL bins (overhead stowage compartments), the entrance area, ceiling panels and all related spares for the entire A320 aircraft family.

As part of the new agreement, Satair will perform supplier support conditions on FACC’s behalf related to covering the spares-related activities.

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.
