A Bombardier CRJ200 airliner has been successfully converted into a ten-seat luxury VIP aircraft by RUAG Aviation’s Cabin Interior Program.
A pioneering venture for the company, this cabin completion project involved overhauling the entire layout configuration, interior design and electronics system to create a modern and comfortable environment for up to ten passengers. A private VIP area, a club seating and dining area as well as a lounge equipped with the latest in-flight entertainment systems have been installed. The newly integrated wireless cabin entertainment systems run a browser-based application that allows passengers to control audio, video, cabin lighting and the electric window shades via their tablets or smartphones.
“For RUAG Aviation, this project represents a successful launch into the European completion market, where we will be providing personalised designs and full customisation with minimal cost and downtime,” said Ulrich Gehling, General Manager Business Aviation, RUAG Aviation. “Reliable cabin completion programs offer multiple benefits: in addition to being more affordable than purchasing a new VIP jet, converting an existing airliner provides owners with the comforts of a large cabin combined with the flexibility to tailor the interior of their aircraft to their individual tastes. This is in keeping with our one-stop-shop philosophy. The next projects have already been lined up, and we are looking forward to any new challenges that the future might bring.”
RUAG Aviation offers a one-stop-shop with their Cabin Interior Program, with a portfolio ranging from initial design consultancy to complete cabin design, furniture construction, cabin and system integration as well as certification. Exterior livery and VIP paint services are also available.
