      HAECO Xiamen Completes Boeing 747-400 Cabin Modification Input for Virgin Atlantic


      HAECO Xiamen has recently completed a cabin modification input on a Boeing 747-400 aircraft for Virgin Atlantic Airways (“Virgin Atlantic”).

      The scope of the project included a C-check and extensive cabin modifications, which focused on the first class and business class areas of the aircraft. Major tasks included reconfiguring the upper deck, lavatory relocation, galley installation, Wi-Fi modification, a full-cabin IFE upgrade and mood-lighting control modification.

      Over the years, HAECO Xiamen has garnered vast experience in cabin modification, having completed more than 300 projects for airlines around the world covering a wide range of aircraft types, including Virgin Atlantic’s Gatwick-based 747s in 2012. The successful completion of the project for Virgin Atlantic is yet another testament to HAECO Xiamen’s technical expertise, quality workmanship and dedication to competitive turnaround times.

      Martin Harrington, Outsourced Base Maintenance – Check Manager of Virgin Atlantic, said: “This demanding and challenging project was planned and completed on time and to a very high standard thanks to the flexibility and hard work of the HAECO Xiamen teams.”

      “Their professional approach to the considerable demands and impact on the initial plan caused by late kit supply, plus their ability to keep the project on track, inspired confidence at Virgin Atlantic’s main base. The fact that the Boeing 747-400 aircraft returned to London after a 12-hour flight and landed with ‘Nil Defects’ is a credit to HAECO Xiamen,” Mr Harrington added.
