Airbus unveils ‘Airspace’ cabin design with the promise of larger overhead storage bins and wider seats
Airbus has launched a new cabin called “Airspace by Airbus” the concept promises clearer legroom, bigger overhead storage bins and onboard wireless in its forthcoming A330neo.
The new ‘Airspace’ cabins feature larger overhead storage bins, spacious and contemporary lavatories, wider seats & aisles, and unobstructed under-seat foot space.
In addition the cabins will boast the latest computer-controlled LED lighting which reflect the mood of the time of day or stage of the flight and the very latest 4th generation in-flight entertainment system.
More main-deck space will be freed up for passengers by the relocation of the crew rest area to the lower deck, while overhead lockers will be two-thirds larger.
The A350 XWB was the first aircraft in the world to be designed with built-in broadband connectivity allowing you to use your own mobile or smart phone, tablet or laptop to send and receive text messages and emails, access the internet or make and receive phone calls.
The company say Airspace will offer a sophisticated, flexible canvas as a back-drop to enhance the airlines’ own brands. Airbus also launches the new cabin for the forthcoming A330neo airliner, which embodies Airspace by Airbus and is inspired by the cabin of its Widebody sibling, the new A350 XWB in service.
Dr. Kiran Rao, Airbus’ Executive Vice President of Strategy and Marketing commented: “Airbus’ history of success is down to innovation – which has always included the cabin as a key driver. 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 – Airspace by Airbus.”
He adds: “The new A330neo is the launch vehicle for this brand, which along with the A350 XWB begins a new family of Airbus cabins. These will inspire and empower airlines to build the next generation of personalized flying experience for their passengers, while and at the same time optimizing the economic performance of their aircraft space.”
