Posturite puts on the style for airport's VIP visitors

Smart new furniture supplied by our Office Environments division is helping Newcastle International Airport to put on the style for its VIP visitors.

The furniture – black leather sofas, contrasting orange tub seating, task chairs, glass coffee tables and a smart new reception desk unit – has been installed in the airport’s private Samson Aviation terminal which is used each year by hundreds of show business and sports personalities, international business executives, politicians and even royalty.

Office Environments was chosen to provide the furniture as part of a total refurbishment of the building situated at the south west corner of the airport’s south apron.

Julian Millar, Office Environments’ national project manager, said: “Posturite has enjoyed a long and close working relationship with Newcastle International Airport, including forging a partnership to run fire safety courses throughout the country. So we were delighted to be given an opportunity to contribute to the makeover of the Samson Aviation terminal which is for the exclusive use of executive passengers and the crew of private planes.

“The facility gives them direct access to and from their aircraft in seconds, saving them valuable time and creating a trouble-free environment. It means that well-known faces can come and go without running the gauntlet of the paparazzi.”
