Bucher has shipped the first set of fully customized Galleys and Stowages to Airbus Toulouse for their integration into the new Virgin Atlantic A330-900neo. Today the airline has taken delivery of the first aircraft.
Bucher is very proud, as Virgin Atlantic Airways is a returning customer. In 2011, Bucher was already able to implement the order for the first generation A330 for Virgin Atlantic. It is a sign of great confidence in the excellent cooperation with Bucher and in the company’s products, that Bucher has now also been selected as the airline’s Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) partner for the follow-up order. Therefore, it is a special honor for Bucher to execute this order for the airline and the whole team congratulates Virgin Atlantic Airways for bringing the first aircraft into service.
Virgin Atlantic is pleased to be able to rely on high-quality galleys made in Switzerland, which offer the best working conditions for the crew and enable them to provide the best possible service for their passengers. As is the case at Bucher, Virgin Atlantic also relies on sustainable and durable products. Bucher’s galleys are made of up to 65% recyclable aluminum and with the help of a specialized team Bucher looks to further expand on their sustainable processes and materials.
A statement from the airline said, “Bucher is known for its high quality and first-class service through short lines of communication; we are pleased that Bucher has supplied exceptional galleys and stowages for our new A330-900neo aircraft. We look forward to welcoming its customers on these beautiful aircraft.”
Quality has always been 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 aluminum. Bucher has continued to refine and optimize this unique lightweight construction concept. Nowadays, however, Bucher has expanded its product offering to also include composite and carbon fiber materials, thus allowing the company to easily and efficiently adapt its products to meet individual customer requirements. Bucher continues to be a global leader in all line fit and retrofit projects.
