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.

"We are pleased to bring the many benefits of low weight and high reliability through FACC’s products to our airline customers worldwide to help give their passengers the luxury of roomier overhead bins and ambient ceiling panels,” Matt Jessee, head of OEM business development at Satair said.

“By using innovative fibre composite materials and new manufacturing technologies, we are able to create products for the aircraft cabin that contribute to consistent weight optimisation. We are excited to work with Satair on bringing our innovative solutions to airlines across the world,” Andreas Furthmayr, vice president cabin interiors programme at FACC said.
