SkyTender receives FAA certification for innovative beverage system Green light to fly on multiple aircraft types

SkyTender Solutions AG has received TSO and STC approvals from the FAA for use of its innovative Skytender beverage system in multiple aircraft types. The certification also positively impacts the recently agreed cooperation with the Swiss specialist in galleys, Bucher Leichtbau AG (www.bucher-group.com). SkyTender solutions enable airlines to significantly improve on-board beverage service while reducing maintenance and waste treatment cost.

Frankfurt, Germany:
The Federal Aviation Administration issued SkyTender with TSO (Technical Standard Order) and STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) approvals in the following categories: Structural, Systems/Electrical, Mechanical and Flammability. Following the Approved Model List – STC (similar to multi-model ap-proval where models can be progressively added), SkyTender will be certified for use on all Airbus and Boeing aircraft types as well as selected Bombardier and Embraer aircrafts. The certification also positively impacts the recently agreed cooperation with the Swiss specialist in galleys, Bucher Leichtbau AG and shortens the usual very cumbersome approval and market launch times of 3 to 5 years significantly for the new galley based beverage system SkyDrinx.

SkyTenders’ mobile beverage trolley as well as the new Galley based system complement each other. Together they have the potential to fully replace the on-board beverage service as known today and practiced for over 60 years now. The innovative system uses a post-mix system to produce and serve high quality hot, cold and carbonated drinks with a single command of the touch screen right in front of the passenger.

The system also encompasses tracking and reporting, thus providing complete transparency of consumption data as a valuable basis for forecasting and order management. Through optimization of weight, space, waste and over-catering as well as elimination of beverage packing, it adds a new dimension to airlines‘ continuous strive for carbon footprint reduction.

“SkyTender Solutions offers airlines a breakthrough solution for an economically and environmentally efficient supply of fresh hot and cold beverages. The mobile trolley, SkyTender, and Galley insert, SkyDrinx, cover all service options – from Economy to First Class and Self Service to Buy-on-Board,” said Mr. Hanns R. Rech, CEO of SkyTender Solutions. Experience it live by visiting us at the upcoming WTCE on April 5th to 7th, 2016, WTCE, Hall 4, Stand G77. Drinks are on us!
