Technically AWAIR was contracted by TCS Expeditions, part of TUI AG, in July 2013 to prepare a specification and project manage the interior retrofit for a 52 pax VIP B757 aircraft which would fly around the world for The Four Seasons Hotels.
The specification included new full electric lie flat seats, a new cabin WiFi system, a new LED lighting system, a new overhead bin system, the upgrade of the existing lavatories, the upgrade of galleys and the refurbishment of existing bulkheads and sidewalls.
Working with Factorydesign, Technically AWAIR created a number of designs and material options that were eventually down selected by Four Seasons, so that a final interior specification was released.
Technically AWAIR was responsible for the selection of suppliers and with the support of H4 Aerospace, the Part 21J DOA, the design and installation data package was developed for an EASA STC.
In early 2014, TAG Aviation were announced as the operator of the B757 and the selection of a suitable aircraft was made, which had been flying for a commercial airline in full economy configuration. Technically AWAIR with the support of the TAG Aviation Technical Services continued working with all the suppliers to ensure that delivery and the quality of the product would be acceptable to Four Seasons and TCS Expeditions.
The new VIP interior was installed by Monarch Airlines Engineering in Birmingham, UK; and aircraft G-TCSX was delivered to TAG Aviation in April 2015 and is now flying around the world for TCS Expeditions and The Four Seasons Hotel.
