Luxair’s 737-800s are getting power ports on board. The carrier selected Burrana to deliver USB-A jacks nose-to-tail as part of a cabin upgrade across the type.
“We needed a slim, integrated, and reliable Dual USB-A outlet solution that allows passengers to arrive at their destination fully charged,” noted Martial Romanjuk, Avionic & Electrical System Support Engineering at Luxair. “Burrana was able to bring this to us in record time, with the flexibility and commitment we required.”
The newly powered cabin returns to service this month.
The lightweight power solution adds dual USB ports on each leg riser, ensuring each passenger has one available. The companies also noted that the offering was quickly installed on the Geven Essenza and Comoda seats via an EASA Minor Mod certification.
“Luxair and Burrana share a common interest in innovation to bring ultra-lightweight, reliable, and high-performance cabin technologies onboard Luxair’s B737 fleet. Burrana’s innovative seat spar design on the seat leg ensures all passengers fly in comfort without any intrusion to their leg room,” said Marc Cougoule, Director, EMEA Region at Burrana. “We’re delighted to continue to build on our relationship with Luxair which started many years ago with the installation of Paves Overhead IFE systems on Luxair’s B737 fleet.”

USB-A….isn’t that 10yr old now? With EU mandate everyone will have USB-C (on both ends) soon
Seth Miller says
It is old, but it is what the majority of devices still use. I agree that especially with the EU mandate it probably makes more sense to at least put in a combo offering. But USB-A isn’t going to disappear completely for a little while. And it is a lower power draw solution typically than USB-C, so it is easier/lighter/cheaper to implement on board.
