Greenpoint Delivers Crystal AirCruises VIP 777-200LR
Greenpoint Technologies redelivers Crystal AirCruises’ VIP 777-200LR interior ahead of schedule. Crystal’s CEO and president, Edie Rodriguez, attended the delivery event, receiving the keys to the company’s newest aircraft, Crystal Skye.
“Crystal Skye beautifully complements all things Crystal, with its exclusively styled design and custom experience she will offer guests. In all our pursuits, and particularly with Crystal Skye, creative collaboration has been an integral part of success. It has been wonderful to work with the experts at Greenpoint to conceive and create this aircraft's exquisite interior design, as their team made our visions an astounding reality. As a global luxury traveler myself, I have been privileged to travel aboard some of the world's finest aircraft, and there is nothing like Crystal Skye around the world,” says Rodriguez.
Greenpoint joined efforts with Crystal early in its planning process with close collaboration between the companies’ design teams, resulting in a smooth design process and bringing the vision of the ultimate-luxury travel experience to flight.
Bret Neely, executive vice president at Greenpoint Technologies, says, “Our goal for this program was to create a luxurious interior showcasing the elegant brand Crystal established with their cruise ships, yachts and riverboats. Greenpoint is a company built on teamwork, both internally and externally with our customers. It was amazing to see the combined core team come together to focus on Crystal’s guest experience, resulting in the beautiful and functional interior we see today.”
The interior installation began in August 2016 at Greenpoint’s Moses Lake facility. A chief requirement for Crystal’s 777 included a grand bar and lounge for guests to dine, relax and socialize. The lounge is an expansive room with a center bar to gather around, sofas, custom coved ceilings, dining tables and ample space to stand and stretch. The full-service bar is a focal element with beautiful stone veneer, colored LED lighting and the signature Crystal logo.
The Crystal Exclusive Class™ seat, a bespoke version of Zodiac Aerospace’s Aura seats, are fully reclining and designed for supreme comfort. Greenpoint increased the widths of each seat and arranged the seating area in a staggered 2x2x2 configuration to provide extra-wide aisleways, accommodating guests traveling in pairs. Each seat reclines to a full lie-flat configuration of 70.5 inches, and features customized privacy surrounds, a four-way adjustable headrest and individual storage ottoman to ensure comfortable rest in flight.
