Jazeera Airways charges ahead with Burrana

Jazeera Airways has selected Burrana’s lightweight in-seat power solution for their cabin retrofit program.

Burrana will install its USB in-seat power solution on Jazeera’s Airbus A320 and A321 fleets.

Each passenger will benefit from USB-A and USB-C outlets to power and charge their personal electronic devices with a system that provides equitable power at every seat, with multiple levels of redundancy and high levels of reliability. Burrana achieves this with a unique 48VDC
architecture, with intelligent power sharing distribution and load shed management that enables all passengers to enjoy their personal devices for the duration of the flight, not needing to worry about running out of battery.

Passengers will also experience no intrusion on their space with an ultralightweight, iPhone-sized USB seat box tucked away within the seat itself.

Eleven aircraft (nine A320s and two A321s) flying all economy are to be retrofitted with Burrana USB power with certification via EASA STC. The first aircraft to be retrofitted is planned for December 2023.

Jazeera’s Chief Executive Rohit Ramachandran said: “Burrana’s USB Power solution is the natural choice to reach our massive weight saving target of 1.2 metric tons per aircraft, without compromise on passenger comfort as USB charging has now become an essential element of
Jazeera Airways passengers’ experience. ”

Burrana VP Customer Experience, Dave Pook, said: “Burrana loves powering up extraordinary passenger experiences and delivering value to our airline partners by enhancing operational efficiencies, increasing revenues, all while minimizing capital and operating expenditure. We applaud Jazeera for challenging our industry to do and be better for future generations.”
