The aircraft was also repainted and underwent an cabin refresh. Work was completed in Vanuatu, making this the largest aircraft engineering project ever completed in the country. The Civil Aviation Authority of Vanuatu provided oversight, ensuring the aircraft is fully compliant with all applicable regulations and standards. [more – original PR]
