AERIA Luxury Interiors, LLC. (AERIA), a specialist in VIP completion and refurbishment, has secured a contract for the completion of Boeing Business Jet BBJ 737-700. This will be the third Boeing Business Jet that AERIA is contracted for since it started operating in 2014. The aircraft is due for arrival in 1Q 2018 at its facility in San Antonio, Texas, USA which is part of ST Aerospace's global Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) network.
The interior, fully designed by AERIA, will feature a VIP stateroom complemented by an on-suite lavatory with showers, separate crew and passenger galleys, an office/meeting room, staff seating, additional lavatories and large 4K monitors throughout. The aircraft interior design will also feature gold plating, ornate details, and a balance of wood and luxurious fabrics in a light, refreshing color scheme.
"We are honored to earn the trust from a customer who had originally come to us for maintenance work, and secure this VIP completion contract from them. AERIA has established a successful track record in VIP completion over the years given our attention to details and dedication to quality, and we will continue to build on it to become a leading service provider in this market," said Mr Ron Soret, AERIA's Vice President and General Manager of Completions.
Specialising in the completion and refurbishment of both Airbus and Boeing jets, AERIA is located in San Antonio, Texas – the birthplace of large aircraft VIP completions – where it has access to skilled craftsmen, a pool of highly trained engineering talent, as well as a cluster of supporting businesses in the region. It expanded its facilities in 2017 with a new cabinet and upholstery shop, as well as an additional building for the design, sales and marketing teams, complete with a design showroom for a first-rate customer experience.
The VIP completions solutions by AERIA and ST Aerospace are being showcased at the Aviation cluster of the ST Engineering Pavilion (G01) at Singapore Airshow 2018 from 6 – 11 February.
