Aircraft Interiors Expo 2018: Airbus presents its Airspace cabins
Airbus showcases its new cabin innovations at this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany – the world’s largest event dedicated to the aircraft interiors industry, in-flight entertainment, connectivity and passenger services.
In terms of Airbus commercial highlights, the centrepiece of this year’s event is the company’s latest A320 Airspace cabin mockup. This features a welcome area with patterned lighting effects, full-flat seats, Airspace XL bins and a lavatory, and will give visitors a good appreciation of the high comfort that the new transatlantic-capable A321LR will provide passengers when it enters service in the near future. A second large mockup at the Airbus stand demonstrates Airspace in a partial A330neo cabin section.
There are numerous visual displays at the Airbus stand and 3D-printed models of cabin enablers and galley arrangements plus other innovations. One can also explore all Airbus Airspace cabins in full 3D virtual reality. Furthermore, visitors can try out the new “A320 Plane it Yourself” digital cabin and systems configurator, as well as the innovative “iflyA380.com” kiosk.
Meanwhile, Services by Airbus, co-located at the Airbus stand, is displaying its A320 mock-up providing an overview on the latest solutions for in-service single-aisle fleets, as well as its latest A330 cabin enablers for retrofit. In addition, the “Day & Night” premium dual suite module from AIS is demonstrated for the first time in full-scale mockup form for A350 customers.
