Thus, the Dräxlmaier Group, which develops and produces interior components and complete interiors for premium automotive manufacturers, has now been given the green light to enter the aviation market as well.

The development and production of high-end seating, interior surfaces and kinematics has become a new trademark of the Dräxlmaier Group’s aviation business.”
