Press Release: Burrana completes first APAC retrofit program with JADE

SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

Burrana and Jamco Aero Design and Engineering (JADE) have completed an extensive retrofit on two widebody aircraft for a top-tier APAC premium service airline, which is repurposing the retrofitted aircraft to a subsidiary. One aircraft is already in revenue service, with the second aircraft expected to be flying by the end of September 2019.

The aircraft were retrofitted with Burrana’s Passenger Service System (PSS), including Passenger Seat Controllers and Burrana’s Cabin Management Terminal. The modular and integrated PSS is not only cost effective for airlines, but ergonomic and easy-to-use for passengers. Passengers in the dual-class configuration on each of the two widebody aircraft will enjoy the benefits of Burrana’s Cabin Management technology.

The project completion signifies the first Cabin Configuration Program project to be completed by Burrana and Jamco Aero Design and Engineering (JADE), which formed their partnership in November 2018. JADE’s structural, electrical and systems engineering design expertise plays a major role in retrofitting aircraft with Burrana’s cabin technology products.

Burrana CEO David Withers said Burrana received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to complete the PSS install on the widebody platform. “We’re pleased to have completed this widebody aircraft install as Burrana. We look forward to building on our strong relationship with JADE on future projects, which includes installation of 110V premium economy In-seat Power on another wide-body aircraft in early 2020.”
