The leather update will be carried out across 130 aircraft including the Airbus A319, A320 and A321 models featuring from nose to tail making it available for all passengers to enjoy. Muirhead is working with BE Aerospace on this project which is due for completion at the end of 2013.

Paul Taylor, Manager Engineering Customer Excellence of British Airways commented: “We have been very impressed with the leather and the length of time it has lasted on a very busy fleet.”

Archie Browning, Sales Director of Muirhead Leather has said: “British Airways is a brand we are incredibly proud to be working with and to have been chosen by them once again. The initial leather used has been in continuous service for over 10 years and we are certain the refurbishment will match that, or even last longer.”
