Cabin Solutions
Airbus selects HAECO

In April, HAECO Cabin Solutions signed a contract with Airbus to supply its new Centerline Ceiling Stowage (CCS) compartment as a line-fit option for new aircraft in the A320 family. The option will also be available as a retrofit for later-model in-service A320 family aircraft that have the ‘Enhanced Cabin’. HAECO Cabin Solutions’ CCS will be offered to Airbus customers through its catalogues for delivery in the first quarter of 2018.


The CCS is designed to hold crew luggage, wheelchairs, life rafts and other emergency equipment, as well as other items. The compartment is offered in two sizes, and is available in two positions on the A320 and three positions on the A321. The ceiling compartment will be compatible with fixed and pivoting bins, and will also be offered as a retrofit option through an Airbus service bulletin modification.


The announcement and signing ceremony were held on the first day of the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX 2017) in Hamburg, Germany, where a model of the CCS was on display at the HAECO booth.
