Interior specialists join forces as AVIC Cabin Systems

An alliance has been formed integrating AIM Altitude and Thompson Aero Seating of the UK, Fesher Aviation Components Company and Jiatai Aircraft Equipment of China, and Austria-based FACC under the banner AVIC Cabin Systems, headquartered in London, UK.

The alliance delivers cabin interior components ranging from AIM Altitude’s premium monuments, social spaces, bars and galleys, to first- and business-class seating by Thompson Aero Seating, economy seating from Jiatai, and interiors and composites by Fesher, FACC and AIM Composites.

“For our premium monuments and social spaces in particular, the market is expanding rapidly,” said Richard Bower, CEO of AIM Altitude.

“Airlines want creative interiors; a luxury, comfortable feel; and for flights to become a more sociable experience for passengers. We are already working closely with Thompson Aero Seating to provide front-row monuments that integrate seamlessly with the seating. We believe that this new and expanded collaboration under AVIC Cabin Systems will further strengthen our position in the aircraft interiors space.”

“Two years ago, in the opening year of the China-UK Golden Era, I attended the ceremony of AVIC International’s acquisition of AIM Altitude,” said Liu Xiaoming, Chinese Ambassador to the UK.

“I had the honor to witness a new chapter for China-UK cooperation on aviation. Today, as the Golden Era shifts into a higher gear, it is exciting to witness the launch of AVIC Cabin Systems and see China-UK cooperation on aviation moving up to a new level.”
