Jet Aviation handed over its first Boeing 787-8 with a VVIP cabin interior completion to an undisclosed customer. Finishing the work on schedule, Jet Aviation took delivery of the green Boeing 787 at its completion center in Basel, Switzerland, in October 2019.

The company installed a low-weight, quiet cabin that was conceptualized by an external design studio and included a number of complex features engineered and produced in-house, Jet Aviation said.

“The exceptionally low cabin noise Jet Aviation achieved on this aircraft is the culmination of long-term collaborative research and development between us, universities, OEMs, and partner companies,” said Enrique Garrido Bosch, completions program director for the program. “Our customer was particularly delighted with his environment of calm. We are very excited about the possibilities for further innovation to develop and shape sound experiences.”

Jet Aviation was able to keep the aircraft under target weight and maintain its schedule using its existing EASA supplemental type certificate (STC) for certifying interior installations on Boeing 787s, added Jeremie Caillet, senior v-p of regional operations EMEA. The STC was the first of its kind for a completions center, he added.
