FACC has received an EASA STC for its Passenger Luggage Space Upgrade to be installed in Airbus A320 Family aircraft. This not only enhances the ambience of the cabin, but also increases stowage space by 67% while reducing weight. The modified overhead stowage compartments can now fit up to five hand luggage cases instead of just three. The newly designed cabin doors also offer airlines a wide range of customisation and branding options. Moreover, the retrofit can be installed in the aircraft in just a few hours. The launch customer for the FACC upgrade is Austrian Airlines.

 

EASA has also confirmed that FACC, as a design organisation, has successfully established the requisite expertise and processes in accordance with legal requirements in order to develop and approve major changes and repairs to aircraft. The STC is part of the required EASA certificate of airworthiness and, for the first time, entitles FACC to carry out substantial modifications to an aircraft by means of the component developed by its design organisation.
