The project comprised the stripping of the original livery off the aircraft’s fuselage and the application of a new coat of paint to the narrow-bodied A320. In order to minimise the aircraft’s downtime, RUAG Aviation’s paint specialists invested approximately 1,500 man hours within a period of just 15 days.
“The success of this project demonstrates RUAG Aviation’s ability to deliver premium paint solutions even for large VIP aircraft such as the Airbus A320,” says Carsten Matthiesen, Director of Exterior Services at RUAG Aviation. “Few companies can support the breadth of painting services provided by our Paint Shop, and fewer still can do so with the same level of precision and commitment. This high quality service is part of our portfolio of VIP solutions, which also includes comforts such as the VIP lounge for the indulgence of owners, operators and their guests.”
The Airbus A320 in question was referred to RUAG Aviation for painting following the conclusion of its regular maintenance.
