Aircraft Interior's Crystal Cabin Award
In 2010 Norduyn's Quantum trolley, the new lightweight trolley jointly developed by Norduyn and LSG Sky Chefs won the Crystal Cabin Award 2010 at the annual Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. A judging panel consisting of international aviation experts, including engineers, corporate executives, scientists and airline representatives, chose the winners from a total of 64 entries from 13 countries. The Crystal Cabin Awards is the most prestigious international contest for excellence in aircraft interiors.
Quantum was selected as the most innovative aircraft cabin product in the Greener Cabin, Health and Safety category. It was recognized for being significantly lighter in weight compared to traditional aluminum frame trolleys, which greatly reduces fuel-burn and therefore carbon emissions.
