Bucher has shipped the first set of fully customised galleys, stowages and partition walls to Airbus for integration into a new A330-800neo for Uganda Airlines.
The airline took delivery of the first of two of the aircraft type it has on order today (22 December).
Bucher said it focused on passenger comfort and service in completing the project, citing example features such as flower holders in the business class area and provisions for easy adaptions of the galley layout for new catering requirements in the future (e.g. increase of oven capacity or installation of wine chillers).
A customised decoration of the monuments will provide a “warm welcome” to passengers, Bucher said, further creating a “comforting atmosphere” within the cabin.
Uganda Airlines director of maintenance Ephraim Bagenda commented: “I am delighted that Bucher delivered extraordinary galleys and stowages to Uganda’s new A330-800neo aircraft.
“The news is a testament to the quality products and service that Bucher is renowned for, and marks the start of our working relationship together. We look forward to welcoming our passengers in these beautiful aircraft.”
