To mark three years of handling aircraft interior design and completion, ExecuJet Aviation Group is broadening its capabilities by moving into bizliner executive cabin completion and refurbishment work. By year-end, the Zurich, Switzerland-based company hopes to add the Airbus ACJ series and the Boeing Business Jet line to its current workload, which consists primarily of Bombardier business jets.

A new, dedicated customer showroom at the Zurich headquarters is part of the expansion program. The move, according to head of completions Pascal Jallier, will not focus solely on completion of green airplanes but also on converting single-aisle airliners for executive use. Jallier mentioned specifically the expanding market for such completion/conversion work in the Pacific Rim, the Middle East and Russia. In fact, he added, Russia now accounts for 40 percent of ExecuJet’s current activity. He further noted that in the past few months, ExecuJet has been approached regarding executive cabin conversions for the CRJ200, Fokker 100 and Dornier 328Jet, and has been responding to requests for proposals for Airbus and Boeing interior work.
