Airbus will present new A380 cabin efficiency enablers – including new space-creating staircase and crew-rest arrangements – with a large four-metre long cutaway model of the entire A380 interior containing these enablers.

For the Widebody A330neo and A350 XWB, Airbus will showcase the latest amenities of the Airspace cabin, with two full-scale cabin cross-section mockups. Visitors will be able to further explore these as well as Airbus' other aircraft cabins in full immersive 3D ‘walk-thru’ virtual reality, as well as some new seat innovations.

In addition, representatives from Airbus and Inflight VR will also demonstrate how they will be ready to take virtual reality IFE to the next level.

Airbus says its cabin innovations concepts go beyond new products and technologies and there will be some significant news about Airbus’ new dedicated cabin upgrade offerings.
