EAM Announces Integration into Lufthansa Technik’s SkyPax Solution
April 4, 2018
EAM Worldwide to give an update on its evacuation slide product at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) 2018 in Hamburg, Germany, Tuesday, April 11. Also on hand will be representatives from Lufthansa Technik. Lufthansa Technik is the integrator of the Skypax solution, a compact system, designed in partnership with Hamburg-based Diehl Aerosystems, which will include the first EAM manufactured slides.
Skypax combines the galley and lavatory into a single unit while utilizing a lower-profile EAM escape slide. This allows for A320s to be retrofitted with additional seats. Lufthansa Technik has already initiated the integration process and completed the installation of Skypax into multiple A320s.
“Lufthansa Technik’s innovative Skypax solution has proven to be an ideal market-entry point for our new Escape Slide. This is an exciting milestone toward opening up the market and giving OEMs and airlines a new slide product option going forward,” states EAM’s Director of sales and marketing, Manny Gato.
EAM has been a global leader in the manufacturing of aviation safety equipment, including life vests, life rafts, and survival kits, for over 65 years. The addition of slides to the company’s product line was first announced in 2013.
AIX 2018 is set to run April 10 to April 12, and EAM will be located at stand 5C10.
