Boeing selects Collins Aerospace as next-gen lavatory supplier for 737 aircraft

Collins Aerospace has won a contract to become the ‘long-term’ supplier of the next generation of lavatories for Boeing’s 737 aircraft family.

Collins said the new system incorporates a modular design and customisation opportunities for trim, finish and lighting, touchless functionality, micro-LED lighting technology and a centralised computing system, which will “optimise passenger experience, improve airline operability and help pave the way for future technology integration”.

Collins Aerospace’s vice president of business development Cynthia Muklevicz said: “Collins’ long-standing relationship with Boeing and specifically our shared history on the 737 lavatory program have made our work on this next-generation 737 lavatory a truly collaborative project.

“Years of cooperation, hard work and innovation have culminated in a final product that provides increased airline value, a clear path for future technology integration and improved passenger amenities.”

The next-generation lavatory is expected to be available on the new 737 aircraft by 2025.

The installation will be available in 12 separate airplane locations and several different lavatory variations.

“We believe this advanced lavatory will be the standard for single-aisle aircraft for years to come,” said Collins Aerospace’s president of interiors Troy Bunk. “The next-generation lavatory enables a degree of choice not typically afforded narrow-body operators, with the flexibility and integrated technology for simple and efficient customization and installation of upgrades.”

Collins Aerospace has been a lavatory supplier for Boeing 737 aircraft since 2013.
