Posted 18 March 2020 · Add Comment

AMAC Aerospace has announced that a Boeing BBJ 747-8 will undergo a re-configuration of the cabin and an update of the whole interior to the latest level.

 

The cabin of the BBJ 747-8 will be re-configured and the aircraft will undergo a 72-month-check in parallel. To equip the aircraft with the latest technology, AMAC Aerospace will install a Ka-Band system with an already existing STC and will upgrade the In-Flight Entertainment (“IFE”). This will ensure that AMAC’s client will have the very latest technology updates on their Boeing BBJ 747-8 and enjoy an incomparable connectivity on board of the aircraft.

“We are very proud to have been awarded with this big project on the Boeing BBJ 747-8. We appreciate the trust of our customers for our expertise in wide-body aircraft. Our engineering skills empower us to install and upgrade the latest technology to customers’ fullest satisfaction,” said Eric Hoegen, director completion sales & key account management, at AMAC Aerospace.

 

 

Several new maintenance contracts signed

 

AMAC Aerospace was also awarded new maintenance projects on several Boeing BBJ 737 aircraft. A privately-owned Boeing BBJ 737 will arrive at AMAC in Basel at beginning of April. AMAC’s team will carry out an annual check. Another Boeing BBJ 737 has already arrived in Basel. AMAC is going to perform a 6-month-check on the privately-owned aircraft. A privately-owned Boeing BBJ 737 recently needed AOG support. Within 24 hours AMAC sent a team to Geneva providing the needed support so that the aircraft went back on service immediately.

 

A privately-owned Bombardier Global 6000 has entered AMAC’s hangar at the end of February. AMAC will carry out a 30-month-check on the aircraft.

 

“AMAC Aerospace’s maintenance projects will remain constant and challenging in 2020. We are continuously expanding our client portfolio and we are looking forward to new ambitious projects,” said Alexis Ott, director maintenance sales & key account management.
