Maintenance firm Magnetic Creative has obtained an EASA-approved STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) for integrating USB systems into Embraer aircraft for SAS airlines.
The recently-finalized STC project involved the reconfiguration of the passenger cabin of Embraer ERJ 190 series aircraft to a single class 122 PAX all economy cabin.
In seat power supply system components were installed which also included manufacturing parts by Magnetic Creative’s production department and delivering part-kits for the final assembly.
Zuzana Obračajová, Sales Director at Magnetic Creative, expressed her gratitude and stated: “Design team’s expertise was put to use during the modification process, needing rigorous testing, meticulous attention to detail, and effective collaboration. The team’s work is highly-appreciated and indicative of more similar and one-of-a-kind projects in the future. We would also like to express our gratitude to SAS for their trust and long-term partnership throughout this process. Working together to bring this exciting enhancement to their passengers has been a pleasure. We are confident that this STC will elevate the in-flight experience, setting new standards in comfort and convenience.“
Mia Jakobsson, Director of Aircraft Trading at SAS, remarked, “Installing this USB system on an Embraer for the first time, coupled with the introduction of these new seats, enables our passengers to enjoy the enhanced experience and a Scandinavian feeling, in line with the rest of the SAS fleet. All thanks to the Magnetic team for the good collaboration and for making this project a success!”
Magnetic Creative is part of the Magnetic Group, which started off as the maintenance department of Estonian Air, before being bought out by private equity in 2010. The current brand was established in 2021.
