Swedish manufacturer is a supplier of large cargo and access doors for the widebody

Saab announced the signing of a new agreement with Boeing to manufacture cargo and passenger access doors for the widebody 787 Dreamliner.

The partnership, in fact, is an extension of an existing contract that began in 2004, when the Swedish manufacturer became part of Boeing’s Dreamliner program.

The head of Saab’s Aeronautics business area, Lars Tossman, expressed his satisfaction with the contract extension, stating that “we continue to be a proud partner to Boeing on the successful 787 program, one of the world’s best-selling widebody aircraft. It strengthens our good and long relationship with Boeing and enhances the cooperation we have, both on commercial aerostructures and the T-7A trainer on the defense side.”

Saab is known for its expertise in providing aeronautical structures for military and commercial aircraft programs. In the case of the doors for the 787, they will be manufactured with composite materials.

In addition, the components will feature a variety of integrated systems, which will provide Boeing with lighter, easier-to-install doors, contributing to the Dreamliner’s operational efficiency and performance.
