Jet Aviation Wins Bid for Two Boeing 747-400 Interiors
Following a fierce bidding process, Jet Aviation’s Basel, Switzerland completion and refurbishment center has won a contract from Dubai Air Wing to outfit two Boeing 747-400s. The airline interiors of both airplanes will be removed and the airframes overhauled before installation of the new executive/VIP cabins. A Jet Aviation spokesman said the contract represents the biggest cabin outfitting order ever received by the center. London-based Gamit, a consulting firm specializing in widebody aircraft engineering, will work closely with Jet Aviation. Both airplanes are to be completed within two years, with the first scheduled for delivery in the fall next year and the second for delivery in the third quarter of 2006. The contract represents the third and fourth Boeing 747 interior completions for the center.
