The final ship set in this series, the momentous occasion marks a 15-year milestone in the relationship between Emirates and AIM Altitude, one set to continue for many years to come.

 

Neil Taggart, Vice President & General Manager of AIM Altitude, part of AVIC Cabin Systems (ACS), said: ‘The A380 interior has seen many iterations over the years, with a major refresh occurring for the 100th ship set.

 

“This long and continuous association with Emirates is evidence that the design of the A380’s lounge bar has reached classic status whilst retaining its freshness and continuing appeal to passengers. The synergy between design and aircraft has proved quite remarkable.”

 

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates, opened AIM Altitude’s new headquarters and state-of-the-art cabin interiors facility at Bournemouth Airport in 2016; a time that coincided with the celebration of the 100th ship set of the A380 interior.
