Travelers can count on Airbus’s upcoming aircraft to be more comfortable and accommodating as the manufacturer recently unveiled Airspace by Airbus, a new cabin created based on customer feedback it has received on its existing cabins. Promising a more relaxing, inspiring, attractive, and functional environment for travelers, the new cabin will offer passengers a number of noteworthy new features, such as 18-inch seats (the industry’s widest, although this may be subject to customization by different carriers), an overhead storage that can hold 66 percent more volume, and lavatories that are more hygienic than ever. The cabin will also include softer ambient lighting that changes color to help travelers adapt to different time zones, better in-flight entertainment connectivity, and more legroom, thanks to a decision to remove the underseat control boxes for its entertainment system. Passengers can start enjoying the new design on Airbus’s A330neo aircraft, which will start operating by late 2017 on carriers such as Delta Airlines, AirAsia, and Garuda Indonesia, among others.
“With the great passenger feedback on the A350 XWB, and our application of A350 cabin technology and features to the A330neo, we are proud to embrace our cabin design principles through our new brand,” said Dr Kiran Rao, Airbus’ executive vice president of strategy and marketing.
