ST Aerospace lands a Dream interiors job with Air Canada


ST Aerospace has secured a contract from Air Canada to perform interior reconfiguration services on part of the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet. This cabin reconfiguration contract follows a long-term agreement with Air Canada, announced in June 2017, for heavy maintenance services on the Canadian operator’s 787 fleet.

The contract has been created through ST Aerospace’s US affiliate company, VT San Antonio Aerospace (VT SAA).

“We are pleased to select ST Aerospace’s San Antonio facility for our B787 interior reconfiguration project,” said Richard Steer, SVP of operations at Air Canada. “VT SAA has demonstrated its ability to deliver high quality and on-time performance in performing C-checks on our flagship B787 fleet.”

“Air Canada is a valued long-standing partner to ST Aerospace, and we have supported them over the years in heavy maintenance, as well as a number of cabin upgrade programs, including turnkey solutions covering engineering design, certification, kitting and modification,” added Lim Serh Ghee, president of ST Aerospace.

Marketed as part of ST Aerospace’s global network, VT SAA is a major provider of maintenance and modification services for mainline and regional aircraft in North America, having more than 3,000 aircraft in its redelivery track record. In 2017, VT SAA became the first MRO facility in the Americas to perform C-checks on the B787, after investing in training, tooling and ground support equipment for this new-generation aircraft. To date, VT SAA has redelivered 10 B787 aircraft across two heavy maintenance lines.
