HAECO Cabin Solutions in cooperation with Diehl Aviation have announced three cabin upgrades designed to reduce weight, increase capacity and improve passenger comfort.
The first product, the “Aft-Simplex,” is a simplified single-aisle aft-lavatory/galley complex. For many single-aisle operators it provides improved density by allowing the addition of up to six seats and lowers operating costs and/or provides increased range through reduced weight. The Aft-Simplex is at least 70 kg (155 lbs.) lighter than comparable solutions from other suppliers. Four standard configurations are available. When installed in combination with HAECO’s Vector Light seats, overall aircraft weight is reduced by up to 800 kg, an unprecedented improvement in operating economics for single-aisle aircraft.
The second product is a combination of HAECO’s Eclipse seat and a unique floor-to-floor solution designed by Diehl. The exceptional design features of the Eclipse seat allow it to be installed in a five-abreast configuration without compromising passenger comfort or privacy.
The third product is an enlarged 737 overhead bin solution. The design of this bin allows it to be installed without modifying the aircraft structure or PSU interfaces at a weight lower than current products.
