This year at the Hamburg AIX, SWS will be exhibiting the award-winning Economy Skycouch™ with Air New Zealand to present licensing and certification opportunities. Economy Skycouch™ which was certified by SWS gives passengers the freedom to choose how you fly. With a row of three seats that easily converts into a flat surface, SWS initially supported Air New Zealand and obtained an STC on the B777. Since then SWS has been working with Air New Zealand to introduce it onto further aircraft. STCs have now also been obtained for its installation on Air New Zealand’s B787-9 Dreamliner.

In late 2013, Air New Zealand signed a licensing agreement with China Airlines allowing them to use the Economy Skycouch™ concept which they will brand as the “Family Couch”. Again SWS provided the necessary certification support to obtain an STC for the Economy Skycouch™ on China Airlines B777-300 ER.
