Aircraft Seating Maintenance Conference


Published on

With oncoming new aircraft deliveries beginning to make their way to airlines, maintenance departments are facing unknown and unfamiliar challenges.

There are a number of new entrants into the aircraft manufacturing marketplace who are all looking at the seating maintenance market. What are the different characteristics of these aircraft, what is the status of these MRO programs and when can entry into service be expected? How logistical and operational seating maintenance processes do impact this over the next decade?

Composite materials are becoming increasingly common in aircraft cabins, in particular for the manufacture of seats and furniture. The planning challenges when performing advanced material repairs is ensuring that acquisition of repair materials is a smooth and streamlined process with cost-effectiveness of materials.

Airlines and MROs are operating to lower time and costs of materials and logistics in a cost-constrained environment. They are heading to IT systems by moving away from paper based documentation and the communication between suppliers and operators is crucial to developing a mutually beneficial and cost-effective working relationship. How can airlines, suppliers and MRO providers work together to minimize downtimes in a complex supplier network in aircraft seating maintenance?
