Lo­cated in­side the Eti­had Air­ways En­gi­neer­ing fa­cil­ity ad­ja­cent to Abu Dhabi In­ter­na­tional Air­port, the new Lan­tal lab­o­ra­tory will pro­vide test ser­vices that in­clude flamma­bil­ity tests, seat cush­ion tests, heat re­lease and smoke tests. The lab­o­ra­tory will con­form to ISO 17025 qual­ity man­age­ment stan­dards, and all test­ing will be con­ducted in ac­cor­dance with the Air­wor­thi­ness Reg­u­la­tions FAR / CS 25.853.
