Airbus Upgrade Services provides a wide range of modifications to enhance and optimise an operator’s aircraft depending on its intended role. 

The scope can include almost any aspect of the aircraft, from the cabin’s appearance and layout to the performance of flight operations – thereby catering to changing market trends, whether they are driven by operational regulations and air traffic efficiency, or simply adapting to the changing needs of passengers.

As new technologies are developed, often in association with new aircraft programmes, Airbus Upgrade Services offers retrofit solutions which can allow fleet harmonization and latest performance standards for the in-service fleet. 

Airbus Upgrade Services’ global solutions include engineering design, installation instructions (service bulletins), associated kits and documentation updates. The customer is assured of a solution which meets their immediate need, and best prepares them for future growth potential and development.  Benefits of upgrading with Airbus include reduced costs, increased revenues, lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in line with the drive towards eco-efficiency.
