Soisa partners with Avalon to recycle used aircraft cabin materials

14 08 2023 05 29 02x1000Aviation finance company Avolon has partnered with Soisa Aircraft Interiors on Waste to Wonder, a project that converts scrap material from old aircraft, such as seat covers and curtains, into craft products rather than being sent to landfill.

Already a large amount of waste cabin materials, including more than 800 kg of leather, has been donated to members of the Tarahumara tribe in Chihuahua, Mexico, who are turning the material into traditional artisan products, such as wallets, bags, aprons and tablecloths.
