AMAC Aerospace is pleased to announce that a new contract has been signed for a Boeing B737. The aircraft will arrive mid June in Basel, Switzerland.

The aircraft will undergo a partial cabin interior refurbishment. The company will install new high-definition monitors, screens and switch panels on board of the Boeing B737.

Based on an already existing STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) developed by AMAC Aerospace, a Ka-band inflight connectivity system will be installed on the B737 aircraft.

The Ka-band system offers broadband connection to use internet services as seamlessly as it is to have on the ground.

In addition, a new IFE (In-Flight Entertainment) system will be installed on the BBJ to provide wireless streaming on all passengers’ devises (iPad, Laptop, etc.).

Eric Hoegen, Director Completion Sales and Key Account Management, AMAC Aerospace, said: “AMAC Aerospace is well known for its Ka-band installations and we are proud to install the system on the Boeing B737. We are delighted to provide our customer the best connectivity in the air which is currently available on the market.”

Furthermore, a maintenance contract has been confirmed for a long-term customer of AMAC Aerospace. The Boeing B737 will undergo a B1, B2 and a due maintenance check at its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.
