Southwest's Speedy Interior Install #AvMRO

RSS

Southwest Airlines is known for speedy turnaround times and efficiency, but check out this time lapse video of mechanics installing a new Evolve interior in a matter of seconds!

Southwest rolled out Evolve in January 2012 to improve passenger comfort and feature more co-friendly interiors. For instance, notice the low-profile seats, which include a durable E-Leather covering that weighs less than the previous leather ones. The carpet is recyclable, too

This new interior, aptly named Evolve, stems from Southwest’s Green Plane that it launched in 2009 to test sustainable onboard products. 

Southwest's green activities also save fuel, which saves money. Keep up the innovations Southwest!
