Starling Aerospace has upgraded and certified the interior of Oryx Jet’s latest addition to its fleet (B737-500) to produce an original stylish appearance. The new luxury interior features a warm walnut wood look finish and soft faux leather throughout the aircraft.
Aircraft interior experts Starling Aerospace were contracted by Oryx Jet, a leading global aircraft charter operator, to refurbish and certify the interior of their latest acquisition – a B737-500. The project included creating a new luxury look for the lavatories, galleys, sidewalls and other key focal points including the window frames, oxygen panel, overhead bin seat number strips and cocktail holders.
Starling Aerospace used their in-house aqua transfer printing facility to create a quality walnut wood look effect for the soft close toilet seat, assist handles, amenity towel strips above the vanity basin, and around the toilet. Ultraleather® (faux leather) was then used to cover the back and sidewalls on the lavatory. Smokey mirrors and decorative stone lookalike flooring (approved by Starling Aerospace) was used to further enhance the plush appearance of this area.
For design continuity, Starling Aerospace used a combination of white faux leather for the side walls and a decorative flow of walnut wood effect for the window frames, oxygen panels, seat rows, cocktail tables on the seat armrests and even the magazine holders. This wood look effect was achieved with aqua transfer printing.
As part of the refurbishment project, Starling Aerospace overhauled the galleys and refurbished them – recovering with new Tedlar, paint and re-anodising the turn buttons. The upgrade included changing the whole face of the G7 gallery using the same aqua transfer printing wood effect, even down to the assist handles. Starling Aerospace was responsible for the certification of the new interior of the Oryx Jet aircraft (B737-500).
