Lufthansa Technik has licensed Iacobucci to manufacture and distribute the ‘chair’ to VIP and commercial aircraft customers around the world. Work has already started for an undisclosed VIP launch customer.
“For a successful establishment of ‘chair’, the supply chain needed to be optimised,” stated Andrew Muirhead, vice president Product Division Original Equipment Innovation at Lufthansa Technik. “Iacobucci turned out to be the best partner for a fast and robust implementation and we are looking forward to seeing the first ‘chair’ finally being handed over to a customer.”
Lucio Iacobucci, president and CEO of Iacobucci HF Aerospace added: “We are excited and proud having been selected to bring the much-awaited product to market. ‘Chair’ is a perfect extension for our comprehensive cabin product portfolio and will enable us to offer an optimal seating solution to almost any VIP cabin completion project on the market today.”
The ‘chair’ seat design is ETSO-certified (European Technical Standard Order) for 9G and 16G and can be installed in any cabin based on narrowbody or widebody aircraft.
