AERQ and Bucher Leichtbau impact the cabin experience with their collaboration
Hamburg, 06 June 2023 – AERQ, a provider for digital cabin solutions, and Bucher Leichtbau, a global leader in aircraft cabin interiors, are collaborating on integrating AERENA Cabin Digital Signage as a 55” UHD bulkhead solution in one of Bucher’s customised galley designs, creating an innovative new cabin experience.
The collaboration's result will be presented at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) 2023 in Hamburg (06-08 June). The galley, designed, and manufactured by Bucher Leichtbau, displays a range of refined features and details that ensure the best working conditions for the crew and optimal service for passengers. The unit has been complemented with AERENA Cabin Digital Signage as a 55” UHD bulkhead solution on the rear wall that can offer flight and destination information, advertisements and helps airlines enhance their brand awareness. By combining both companies’ strengths, AERQ and Bucher enhance the cabin experience and the atmosphere on-board.
Bucher's galley design is based on its guiding principle of Sustainable Solutions. Bucher continues to develop and produce lighter and more reliable products that help airlines reduce their carbon emissions during operations. Their products have a long lifecycle due to their unique construction and the ability to easily exchange parts. This ensures that airlines are able to reduce their carbon footprint by minimizing waste and extending the life of their cabin interiors.
AERENA Cabin Digital Signage powered by OLED technology allows airlines to create a brand experience that sets them apart. Its light weight, slim design, and cinematic picture quality bring airlines' brands to life in every possible facet. With AERQ's software solution, Cabin Digital Signage Studio, airlines are given full ownership of content management and the visual expression from creative composing to fast deployment. These innovative, automated workflows ensure efficient and time-saving processes, making content changes possible with just a few clicks.
“By partnering with AERQ we have brought together two major players, which are very different but complement each other very well. This is shown in the positive effect the integration of the bulkhead solution in our galley design has on the airlines and the passengers”, said Günter Müllers, Director Sales & Programs Galley at Bucher Leichtbau.
“We are very pleased to shape the future of the digitised cabin, bringing innovation to the cabin experience together with Bucher Leichtbau. We are very excited to present how our collaboration can upscale the cabin atmosphere at AIX in Hamburg”, said Son Yob (Louis) Pak, Co-Managing Director at AERQ.
AERQ's AERENA Cabin Digital Signage bulkhead solution integrated into Bucher's galley design will be displayed at the booth 5D60 from Bucher Leichtbau at the upcoming AIX from June 6-8 in Hamburg, Germany.
