AIM Altitude has announced it was responsible for the new front-row monuments (FRMs) for LATAM, on its refreshed fleet of 767 and 777 aircraft.
Following the design concept originated by PriestmanGoode, the front-row monuments mimic the features of the seats, manufactured by Thompson Aero Seating, to create a seamless look throughout the cabin. Referencing the commonalities in landscape across the countries encompassed by LATAM airlines group, the cabin design is modern and aims to offer great comfort. Contemporary, luxurious finishes, in tan and grey tones, set the scene for relaxation.
Hard-wearing materials were selected for high-wear areas, with easily replaced parts in case damage occurs, and for easy refresh.
Stowage was maximised by using an upper literature pocket with wash lighting to promote LATAM’s in-flight magazine – Vamos. A lower stowage pocket provides space for personal goods, and footwell stowage was also created for shoes.
The engineering design of the FRMs was undertaken by AIM Altitude in New Zealand and the monuments were manufactured by AIM Altitude Cabin Interiors in the UK. The first of the new interiors is now in service, with AIM Altitude producing 21 ship sets in total. The seats were manufactured by Thompson Aero Seating in Northern Ireland.
