Wide-body ACJ redelivered in record time at SR Technics

SR Technics of Zurich, Switzerland, has redelivered a wide-body Airbus aircraft with a full VVIP cabin in 41 days, ahead of schedule. The aircraft underwent a maintenance check, which required the removal and reinstallation of the VVIP cabin, in addition to some minor repairs to cabin monuments.

“The challenge was to get the cabin removed and then reinstalled in record time,” said Gregor Müller, head of the interior competence center at SR Technics. “We were able to assemble a team of cabin experts and came up with a unique process to minimize the time required for the removal and reinstallation, taking into consideration the individual cabin parts, which have fragile surfaces. In the end, we removed the cabin in five days and reinstalled in 15 days, completing the job in even less time than planned, and because of the special setup, left the cabin in perfect condition.”

SR Technics reported that the check was another success. “Similar work is often expected to take 90 days of downtime, the standard market time for a job of this sort,” said Michael Sattler, head of aircraft services at SR Technics. “Since we can run 2-3 daily shifts here in Zurich, we were able to offer the job in a timeframe that is unique to this industry. We proved that we can deliver fast, as we completed the work two days ahead of schedule, in just 41 days.”

“At SR Technics we redeliver the aircraft on a defined day and not to a calendar week with a delay buffer,” said Sattler. “Even a short delay can mean a lot to carriers, and with the next aircraft waiting outside, we have created a lean setup and process landscape that lets us use our capacity flexibly. We even ramp up to a 24-hour shift model, if required, to meet a tight deadline.”
