Singapore Technologies Aerospace (Chalet D50) announced here the high-end VIP outfitting of a DC-8 former airliner for an unidentified Middle East customer. ST Aerospace’s in-house design and engineering department handled the redesign, reconfiguration and relocation of seats, galleys and lavatories in the cabin, while the company’s U.S. facility in San Antonio, Texas’ did the build and installation, along with the management of engineering authorization and certification.

The high-end cabin features a master suite with lavatory and shower, three passenger lounges, a mid-ships bar, a crew-rest area and an aft galley and acoustic curtains to provide additional privacy.

Projecting a compound annual growth rate of 3.7 percent, ST Aerospace forecasts growth in the cabin interior retrofit market from the current $5 billion to $7.2 billion by 2020.
