The ExecuJet Aviation Group opened its new aircraft interiors showroom
late last week, at its headquarters in Zurich Airport, Switzerland. The spacious and dedicated showroom is
located above the company’s Fixed Based Operation (FBO). Clients can
now visit the showroom to specify their aircraft interiors and select finishes before ExecuJet visually displays the proposed interior on a large plasma
screen by using computer aided design software.
On show is a large range of wood veneers, a wide selection of leather qualities such as calf, lamb and buffalo as well as countless fabrics
including silk, cotton and velour. The showroom boasts an extensive selection of plating in various shades of gold and platinum and all grades
of carpet including hand tufted cashmere, silk and some 500 samples of coloured wool balls. The showroom also features an extensive range
of accessories including cashmere blankets, towels and china ware that are all part of the VIP amenities packages.
“We have invested in this facility for our clients to give them a one stop shop when planning their aircraft interiors. Everything can be planned
on site from wood for the tables and sideboards to the colour and feel of luxury inflight blankets,”
said Gerrit Basson, Managing Director
ExecuJet Aviation Group.
“Previously our representatives have been travelling to clients all over the world carrying large cases of samples, but this showroom offers a far
wider variety enabling the interiors to be planned on site in comfort using our computers and state of the art design software. Zurich’s location
in the heart of Europe makes this facility very accessible and we foresee that OEMs and completion centres will choose to visit us too.”
ExecuJet’s showroom has been designed inhouse by the company’s interiors specialist Pavina Papé. She has used neutral stone and slate
colours to create a stylish, minimalist look that does not detract from the products and materials showcased. This is a project that has taken
almost a year to come to fruition. Back lighting is complemented by glass and furniture has been sourced from designer Ron Arad.
ExecuJet’s Completions Division works hand in hand with the OEMs as soon an aircraft deal, new or pre-owned, is concluded with a customer.
Complementing its interiors expertise, ExecuJet has a wealth of accreditations in MRO and technical services operating over 150 private jets on
management contracts on eight Aircraft Operators Certificates (AOCs) around the world.
