More 767 work for MacCarthy Aviation=
MacCarthy Aviation has been awarded a significant contract from Loftleidir, a part of the Icelandair group to refurbish two B767-300ER aircraft.
The contract is to completely refurbish two ship sets of galleys and to provide uplift kits for twelve lavatories. The work package for the galleys consists of; deep cleaning, replacement of any damaged parts, treat any corrosion, check and test all electrical wiring and plumbing. The lavatory kits designed, manufactured and certified by MacCarthy will include; Corian worktop, stainless steel basin, toilet shroud, faucet, amenity and vanity units, LED lighting, mirror, electric flush switch plus many more features across both business and economy class lavatories.
Mark Radford Sales & Marketing Director commented, “We are delighted to work with Icelandair on this program, which further demonstrates our expertise in this growing market for galley and lavatory refurbishment work packages. This short flow programme further demonstrates our flexibility and will utilise designs currently in place saving time and money for the customer ensuring they receive the equipment with a new lease of life and years of continued service ahead of them.
We are seeing more and more twin aisle work, especially B767 aircraft, coming through our factory for galley and lavatory uplift. 2013 will be another busy year with a healthy order-book of galley refurbishment, lavatory upgrade and VIP interior work.”
Both aircraft are currently under lease to carrier Air Niugini
