New single-aisle cabin products unveiled

HAECO Cabin Solutions, in cooperation with Diehl Aviation has launched three cabin upgrades designed to reduce weight, increase capacity, and improve passenger comfort.


“Aft-Simplex,” is a simplified single-aisle aft-lavatory/galley complex which provides improved density by allowing the addition of up to six seats and lowers operating costs. At least 70 kg (155 lbs) lighter than comparable solutions from other suppliers, it provides increased range through reduced weight. When installed in combination with HAECO’s Vector Light seats, the overall aircraft weight is reduced by up to 800kg, an unprecedented improvement in operating economics for single-aisle aircraft. Four standard configurations are available.


The second product is a combination of HAECO’s Eclipse seat and a unique floor-to-floor solution designded by Diehl. The exceptional design features of the Eclipse seat allow it to be installed in a 5-abreast configuration without compromising passenger comfort or privacy.


The third product is an enlarged 737 overhead bin solution. The design of this bin allows it to be installed without modifying the aircraft structure or Passenger Service Unit interfaces at a weight lower than current products.


“We thank Diehl Aviation for their partnership and opportunity to jointly introduce these upgraded cabin products,” said Doug Rasmussen, President and Group Director of HAECO Cabin Solutions. “These upgrades enhance the onboard experience while at the same time driving better operating efficiencies.”


“The cooperation and synergies we have had with HAECO developing these enhanced cabin products has been tremendous,” said Holger Hafner, Senior Vice President of Upgrade Solutions with Diehl Aviation. “Anytime you’re able to improve the overall passenger experience while improving aircraft operating economics it is a win-win.”
