Latvian low-cost carrier, Primera Air has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321neo. However, the aircraft wasn’t quite ready to enter service, so it was flown to Magnetic MRO’s facilities in Tallinn for cabin reconfiguration work. The scope of the project included the installation of Series 7 business class seats from Acro Aircraft Seating, with Primera Air being the launch customer of this seat model.
This project was also a first for Magnetic MRO, being its first Airbus A321neo program. “Not only is this the first time for our company, but also for the industry itself, as the aviation industry has never before seen these types of premium seats on an Airbus A321neo,” said Priit Kimmel, engineering manager at Magnetic MRO.
Magnetic MRO is now preparing for further Primera Air projects in the coming weeks, the next being for more Airbus A321neos and Boeing B737 MAX9 aircraft as they leave the final assembly lines.
