SINGAPORE - Singapore Technologies Aerospace, the aerospace arm of Singapore Technologies Engineering, has clinched a nose-to-tail cabin completion contract for a wide-body VIP aircraft.

The value of the contract was not disclosed.

This comes after ST Aerospace won a green aircraft completion deal in February this year, ST Engineering said on Wednesday.

The new contract entails creating "an exclusive entry way into the private suite, a comfortable master suite and a luxurious bathroom", the company said.

ST Aerospace's VIP completions brand Aeria Luxury Interiors will use its newly acquired 3D printer to create cabin features such as a custom ceiling, it added.

"By using a technologically advanced 3D printer, operational efficiency will be increased while production time and overall costs are more effectively managed," ST Engineering said.

The aircraft is due to arrive at Aeria's hangar in the third quarter of this year, and be redelivered to the client in the fourth quarter of 2016.
