Paris Air Show: A320 Airspace interior unveiled

Posted 19 June 2017 · Add Comment

Following last year's introduction of the A330neo and A350, Airbus has announced the introduction of the A320 to the Airspace family.

The brand DNA is based on a consistent range of strong cabin product elements designed to provide both tangible benefits to passengers and differentiation to airlines.

The A320 will not only share common cockpit ergonomics with the wide-bodies but will also have a common cabin design language and the latest technology.

“The A350 XWB cabin has proven extremely popular, with great feedback not only from passengers but from design professionals,” commented Dr Kiran Rao, Executive Vice President, Product Strategy, Airbus Commercial Aircraft. “This was great validation that gave us confidence to apply the design language to the A330neo and now to the A320 Family.”

Airlines expressed great interest in the new A320 Airspace’s increased overhead storage when revealed to customers at AIX Expo in April. 
“The A320 offers airlines 40 percent more volume for their passengers’ bags, accommodating larger carry-on bag dimensions than competing single-aisle airliners,” said Ingo Wuggetzer, Vice President, Cabin Marketing. “More overhead space means quicker boarding times, a value-add for passenger, and a better overall experience.”

Additional features such as the less obtrusive cabin sidewall panels and lavatory options (‘Smart-Lav’ and ‘Space-Flex’) maintain a consistent design to the popular Airspace wide-body series. Passengers will also be provided with the modular IFE platform with overhead video and in-seat audio/video on-demand, as well as the provision for in-seat power, wireless flexible connectivity and mobile telephony (GSM on board). The full Airspace Interior package is targeted for 2020 and will retrofit to the current hardware.
