Mesa, which has recently opened its new hangar for maintenance of Airbus aircraft, has now completed its first service in the novel facilities. This first work consisted in a cabin modification of an Hi Fly’s Airbus A321.

Hi Fly, a leading wet lease specialist and charter airline operating worldwide, has changed the cabin configuration of its Airbus A321 CS-TRJ, replacing the 153 seats (4 first, 12 business and 137 economy) for a full economy version of 220 brand new seats, to meet the demands of a new operation that the aircraft has been assigned to.

This work implied several changes, including seats replacement, class dividers removal, PSU (passenger service unit) adaptation, floor covering replacement, placard installation, emergency equipment adaptation, cabin assignment module (CAM) replacement and crew rest removal.

The six days cabin modification was handled by strictly following certified instructions and drawings to guarantee the continuous airworthiness of the aircraft in post-configuration.

Mesa’s new hangar covers an area of about 9,500 m2 and includes workshops, warehouse, offices, training facilities and other support premises. It operates around the clock 24/7 and is ready to receive and service Airbus A319, A320, A321, A330, A340 and A350, having the capacity to perform maintenance works on up to three aircraft at a time.
