Etihad Airways has awarded Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) contracts to upgrade seating and in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems in the airline’s fleet of six Boeing 777 aircraft and 10 of the airline’s Airbus A320s.

The Boeing 777 retrofit programme involves replacing and reconfiguring economy class seats as well as upgrading existing IFE to the latest Thales i5000 system. The cabins of the Airbus A320s will also be completely refurbished to the latest Etihad specification.

John Byers, CEO of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies, said, “We are very much aligned with Etihad’s quality strategy and are working towards replicating their seven star standards, which is becoming the marque of Abu Dhabi. We will receive the first of Etihad’s Boeing 777 fleet in early December and with aircraft inductions at a rate of two per month, we will complete the upgrade programme by August 2010.”
