Galley pact

  • 21-Nov-2008 10:10 EST
Airbus has selected B/E Aerospace as the supplier of galley systems for the A350 XWB. B/E Aerospace’s new galley system is designed to accommodate the aircraft's "flex zones," which allows the airlines to select from a catalog of pre-engineered galley configurations. A modular approach to the design allows the airlines to select galley positions and configurations for their specific operational needs, while minimizing total aircraft system weight. The modular approach also allows for a more automated assembly process, reducing both cost and lead time for Airbus and its airline customers.
