Unique ergonomic design went into the Bucher galleys designed for the A330-900new

TAP Air Portugal has become the world's first airline to fly the new A330-900neo and has selected Bucher galleys to equip the cabins of the aircraft.

The aircraft is the first to feature the new “Airspace by Airbus” cabin concept. Airspace offers flexible zones and innovative design for the cabin crew's workspace and gives passengers a new cabin experience.

The development of the Bucher galleys focused on optimizing the crew’s operations but also increasing comfort for passengers. The challenge, said Bucher officials, was to develop galleys that were light, safe and which conformed to the specifications of the new aircraft while also adapting to the customer's unique ergonomic requirements.

“Bucher has equipped this wonderful aircraft with efficient and well-designed galleys,” said Joel Fragata, Head of In-Flight Product at TAP Air Portugal, in today’s announcement. “The galley specification for the A330neo was an enormous challenge and Bucher accepted to be part of this great project and adventure.”
