HAECO Cabin Solutions Announces Wingo as First Latin American Customer for Vector

Greensboro, NC - HAECO Cabin Solutions, a division of HAECO Americas and a business unit of the HAECO Group, announced today that Wingo, a new low-cost airline, will be the first Latin American customer to use the VectorTM single-aisle economy class seat.

HAECO Cabin Solutions provided Wingo with a turnkey solution for its needs by handling reconfiguration engineering, obtaining the supplemental type certificate, and delivering the short-haul VectorTM economy class seats. To meet the airline’s commercial operation requirements, HAECO Cabin Solutions completed the extensive retrofit process for their Boeing 737-700 fleet, from order to delivery, in three months, made possible by the configurability and speed to market of the VectorTM seat.

Working with HAECO has been a positive experience from the start,” said Ahmad Zamany, Vice President of Tech Operations for Wingo. “HAECO’s ability to work with us closely and satisfy our requirements in a timely manner has been exemplary.”'

Mark Peterman, President of HAECO Cabin Solutions, said, “I am proud of the way we worked together with Wingo to provide an efficient, timely solution. Our business benefits from being nimble enough to customize VectorTM to meet our customer’s needs and from having solid experience in the commercial aviation industry.” Wingo will begin flying its newly retrofitted Boeing 737s in Latin America and the Caribbean in December 2016.
