“We are delighted to be Uganda Airlines’ choice for the outfitting of the long haul Economy and Premium Economy Class on such a rare aircraft, said Alberto Veneruso, managing director of Geven. “Working together with Uganda’s team for the first time was a huge inspiration for Geven. The enthusiasm and outstanding integration of Uganda, Airbus and Geven teams have played a significant role in this successful delivery. We have worked closely with a cooperative approach from the early stages of this 9 months process. Grateful for Uganda Airlines’ trust, we look forward to continue and strengthen our collaboration in the future.”

 

“Outfitting the Economy Class of the A330-800neo with 210 PIUMA AQ in a 2-4-2 layout, brings total seat number installed of this model up to 80.000 units,” said Giovanni Vitiello, programme manager at Geven.
