Airbus’ staff are constantly striving to innovate; dedicating the breadth of their expertise to creating new technologies which provide either savings or potential new revenue streams to operators. Airbus Upgrade Services provide a wide range of modifications to enhance and optimise aircraft depending on its intended role. The scope can include almost any aspect of the aircraft from the appearance and layout of the cabin to the flight operations’ performances.

As new technologies are developed, often in association with new aircraft programmes, Airbus is able to offer retrofit solutions which can allow fleet harmonisation and improvement to the very latest performance standards for the in-service fleet.

Airbus offer global solutions which include engineering design, installation instructions (Service Bulletins), associated kits and documentation updates. Upgrades are available for cabins as well as for systems and airframes; offering the potential to increase comfort, efficiency or even introduce connectivity to the cabin or fully optimise the flight capabilities of the particular aircraft.

With customer satisfaction and the desire to build lasting and positive relationships at the heart of Airbus’ business the upgrades offered reflect the desire to constantly improve; ensuring customer’s complete and continued satisfaction whilst creating value at every opportunity.
