April 5, 2017 – Airbus has selected HAECO Cabin Solutions as its supplier for the Centerline Ceiling Stowage (CCS) compartment line-fit option for the A320 family of aircraft. The option will also be available as a retrofit for newer in-service A320 family aircraft which have the ‘Enhanced Cabin’. The CCS will be offered to Airbus customers through its catalogs for delivery in the first quarter of 2018.
The CCS is designed to hold crew luggage, onboard wheelchairs, life rafts and other emergency equipment, among other items. The compartment is offered in two sizes, and is available in two positions on the A320 and three positions on the A321. The ceiling compartment will be compatible with fixed and pivoting bins, and will also be available as a retrofit option through an Airbus service bulletin modification.
