Airbus appoints TAECO as cabin outfitter
Airbus announced today that it has appointed Taikoo (Xiamen) Aircraft Engineering Company Ltd (TAECO) as its first approved cabin-outfitter in Asia-Pacific, thereby expanding its range of completion centres available to corporate jet customers.
TAECO is a subsidiary of Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Ltd. (HAECO), specialising in heavy and line maintenance, freighter conversion, component overhaul, engineering design, parts manufacturing and training in Xiamen, Mainland China.
Outfitting the cabins of business jets, such as the Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) and A320 Prestige is a new venture for TAECO, which has already built a cabin mock-up to showcase its capability in the field.
“We are pleased to be approved as Airbus first completion centre in the Asia Pacific, which is a recognition of TAECO’s expertise and experience in the aircraft engineering field. Expanding into cabin completions for Airbus corporate jets is an important and exciting new business opportunity for us, and we look forward to receiving the first Airbus corporate jet to be fitted out at our completion centre,” says TAECO Chief Executive Officer Patrick Healy.
