TIMCO Aviation Services has begun interiors modification work on the first CRJ200 aircraft in a fleet operated by “a leading North American airline”. TIMCO will retrofit more than 36 of the same aircraft type, with all work being performed at the company’s Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport aircraft MRO facility.
The programme involves a variety of updates to each aircraft interior, including re-covering walls with new laminates, restoring overhead bins, adding lighting enhancements and refinishing passenger seats with new leather covers. TIMCO’s Cincinnati operation will dedicate two continuous lines of work to the programme, which is running until November.
Bill Weaver, general manager for TIMCO’s Cincinnati operation said: “We are pleased to have been selected for this large programme, and our team is anxious to meet the challenge of our customer’s aggressive delivery schedule. We recently delivered a similar, complex interiors programme successfully for another customer, and everyone is eager to build on the same momentum.”
