Air Tahiti Nui Selects Sabena technics for Full Cabin Mod

Sabena technics developed and supplied the STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) in-house as well as the kit manufacturing for the cabin modification for a full cabin modification on a fourth Air Tahiti Nui jet.
Sabena technics’ teams have equipped the two-class cabin with brand new seats as well as with the latest In-Flight Entertainment systems allowing passengers to benefit from a wireless internet connection on-board using their own personal touchscreen tablet.
“This project highlights our ability to carry out a complex cabin modification from A to Z, inhouse, with an utmost attention to detail,” said Philippe Rochet, COO of Sabena technics. “With this new cabin, passengers choosing to travel with Air Tahiti Nui will get the best value in terms of technologies, comfort and materials.”
“The retrofit of this fourth aircraft completes our fleet renovation program initiated two years ago. This $22.4 million project aims at offering improved seat comfort to our customers both in business and economy class. The highlights of the new cabins also include a new Inflight Entertainment System featuring an on demand access to a selection of movies, music, games, and magazines. In the same time, the new configuration also helps generating fuel cost savings through lighter equipment. I would like to thank our partners for their ongoing support and trust our customers will enjoy this experience, said M. Michel Monvoisin, chairman & CEO of Air Tahiti Nui.”
Sabena says the aircraft was delivered on-schedule to the airline at the beginning of December.
