Bucher shipped the first set of fully customised galleys, stowages, foghouses and partition walls to Airbus in time for integration into Cebu Pacific’s newly-delivered A330-900neo.
The airline has 16 A330neos on order.
Bucher said its focus for the project was to enable Cebu to provide a high-density concept and to utilise the available space in the cabin “in the best way possible”.
The company has developed highly compressed galleys for the restricted space conditions to allow Cebu to maximise seating capacity, it said.
“We appreciate the trust in our company and the great working relationship [with Cebu], which we have experienced during the whole project,” stated Bucher. “Quality has always been a driving force at Bucher. This can be attributed to the founder of the company, Heinrich Bucher, who was inspired by the idea of producing lightweight and reliable galleys made out of aluminium.
“Bucher has continued to refine and optimise this unique lightweight construction concept. Nowadays, however, Bucher has expanded its product offering to also include composite and carbon fibre materials, thus allowing the company to easily and efficiently adapt its products to meet individual customer requirements.”
