First commercial flammability test lab launched in the Middle East

Located inside the Etihad Airways Engineering facility adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport, the new Lantal laboratory is providing test services that include flammability tests, seat cushion tests, heat release and smoke tests.

The Lantal flammability test lab in Switzerland is well-known for its high quality standards and short lead times. The partnership with Etihad Airways Engineering, will bring Lantal’s services closer to customers in the Middle East and it is now easier and faster for them to access world-class flammability testing.
