Denmark's Satair and FACC sign global exclusive distribution agreement
Satair, Denmark’s airbus services firm, and FACC, a manufacturer of advanced
aircraft components and systems, have signed their first agreement. The multi-year
agreement covers the global exclusive distribution of Airspace XL bins (overhead
stowage compartments), the entrance area, ceiling panels, and all related spares
for the entire A320 aircraft family.
As part of the new agreement, Satair will perform supplier support conditions on
FACC’s behalf related to covering the spares related activities. Besides furnishing
ceiling panels that illuminate the cabin with ambient LED light, the overhead stowage
compartments covered by the agreement provide 40 per cent more space. Specifically,
the Airspace XL bins, the largest overhead stowage compartments in the short and
medium-haul class, can hold up to 60 per cent more luggage, eight pieces of hand
luggage instead of the previous five, measuring 61 x 40.6 x 25.4 cm, Satair said
in a press release.
