By Sabrina Pirillo

Diehl Aerospace, a unit of Diehl Aviation, announced today it has secured a contract extension from Boeing for the delivery of the interior lighting system for the 787.

Diehl has a long-standing relationship with Boeing, supplying cabin interiors and aircraft systems parts since the early 1990s. The initial contract for the development and serial production was signed in 2005. The extended contract expires at end of 2022.

The cabin has an all LED mood-lighting system designed and developed about two decades ago by Diehl. The company has improved its interior lighting product on the aircraft type and is now providing a new generation of LED solutions, offering significant cost reductions while maintaining its outstanding quality performance and optical appearance, according to the February 3press release.
