November 4, 2015 – Singapore Technologies Aerospace (ST Aerospace) has secured a cabin reconfiguration contract with Air Canada, for eight Airbus A330 aircraft. The first A330 will be inducted in the third quarter of 2016, with the last aircraft targeted for redelivery by the end of Q1, 2017.

For each of the eight aircraft, ST Aerospace will be installing additional premium economy seats in the aircraft cabin whilst enlarging the economy class section. The scope of work will also include the integration of an audio and video on-demand system, and maintenance checks for the entire aircraft fleet. Upon completion of the prototype aircraft, applications will be submitted for Supplemental Type Certificates from the US Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada Civil Aviation.

Following the initial contract award in 2013, 12 Boeing 767-300 aircraft have now been redelivered to Air Canada, after a full cabin reconfiguration program which includes engineering design, modification kit manufacturing, aircraft modification, certification, as well as overall program management.
