Refurbishment, Modifications and Upgrades

At Jet Aviation Basel we have a long history of refurbishment, modifications and upgrades of aircraft cabins, which we are able to do while your aircraft is in Basel for maintenance. From conceptual design through engineering, manufacturing, installation, testing and certification, our on-site shops and comprehensive services cover the entire value chain for your required modifications.

Our ability to meet all of your needs in-house helps improve your aircraft’s utilization by reducing its downtime. Whether you require minor changes such as soft material modifications on existing interiors, new equipment, lighting changes or want to create an entirely new interior for your aircraft, our design, engineering and certification teams do it all. In addition, our avionics team is also on hand to advise you on requirements, options and upgrades paths for the range of Cabin Management Systems (CMS) and In-Flight Entertainment systems (IFE).
