1.Lufthansa Technik AG
With AeroFLAX, Lufthansa Technik has developed the first renewable, eco-efficient, and airworthy prepare for aviation. The unique combination of flax fibers and a bio-based resin system allows for a revolutionary optimization of the component weight by up to 20% and additional CO2e savings over the entire lifecycle of the component.
Lufthansa Technik’s unique and patented repair solution offers a sustainable and cost-saving way to renew any VIP cabin. By repairing inside the cabin, this solution is up to eight times cheaper and up to nine times faster than conventional methods. With a wide range of cabin surface materials and imitation surface patterns, our experts can refresh cabins during routine maintenance or short ground times. The idea behind it: instead of replacing cabin furniture, it is renewed sustainably with minimal use of materials. The combination of traditional craftsmanship and advanced technology makes cabin refurbishment unique. The approved method can be applied to any cabin without the need for qualification.
2. Pexco Aerospace
AirShield is a cabin-air wellbeing device that re-purposes the airflow from existing overhead air vents to create protective air barriers around and in-between each passenger in an airplane cabin. The patent-pending device works alongside existing cabin airflow infrastructure. It has been proven to reduce sharing of exhaled particles between passengers by 76% while increasing the droplets purged from the cabin by 230%. A practical solution that is easy to install and retrofit, proven effective, and passenger preferred, AirShield is available from Pexco Aerospace and is targeted to be FAA certified for flight in Q2 2022.
3.Airbus Corporate Jets
Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and Latécoère Interconnection Systems (LIS) have co-developed a new and unique In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) technology – “The ACJ Smart LiFi Monitor” aiming to bring the on-ground experience to the sky. This all in one display integrates all the main features of current state of the art IFE systems while being designed to be an easy plug and play solution and is ready for all the new future cabin generations.
4.Collins Aerospace air lounge
The AirLounge is not a traditional aircraft seat but takes inspiration from lounge furniture. The seat is designed to maximize comfort, space, and freedom to move during a long-haul flight. The clean lines and the dark, comforting colour scheme follow Finnair’s Nordic design style that is visible also in Finnair’s lounges in the non-Schengen area at Helsinki Airport.
5.Collins Aerospace Hypergamut
Collins Aerospace launched its Hypergamut™ Lighting System at the Aircraft Interiors Exposition in Hamburg, Germany. The advanced full-cabin lighting system is attuned to human biology to reduce passenger jetlag, color-optimized to improve the appearance of materials, food and fixtures throughout the cabin and autotomized to intelligently sync with real-time flight data to enable predictive and independent functionality. A first of its kind solution for aircraft interiors, the Hypergamut Lighting System is a finalist in the Health and Safety category of the Crystal Cabin Awards and scheduled for entry into service in early 2024.
6.Collins Aerospace spacechiller
Collins Aerospace has introduced SpaceChiller™, a modular thermoelectric cooling system scalable to fit a variety of applications throughout an aircraft’s interior. Introduced at the Aircraft Interiors Exposition in Hamburg, Germany, SpaceChiller quietly and efficiently chills compartments to food-safe temperatures without the use of refrigerants that may impact global warming.
With applications ranging from premium suites and passenger social zones to single galley inserts and whole cart bays, airlines benefit from flexibility in service, storage and space without sacrificing room for passengers and flight attendants.
7. Flying disabled
Power Wheelchair users are the most vulnerable passengers that fly. These numbers have increased over the decades, yet the aircraft cabin has not changed or adapted for this rising demographic. It is with the emphasis passenger safety that solutions must urgently be established and implemented. Once a solution has been applied, confidence will soar and the numbers flying will increase. Globally the disability market has a disposable income of over $13 Trillion. A market the Airline industry has yet to actively permeate.
8.Teague and NORDAM
Teague and NORDAM have created a cabin that offers passengers more personal space, privacy, and comfort in a home-like interior – without compromising existing passenger numbers. Single-aisle aircrafts are increasingly being used for long-haul flights. As more of these aircraft enter service, the onboard passenger experience is in direct competition with twin-aisle aircraft that fly the same routes. Passengers may feel the premium experience in a narrowbody cabin does not meet or exceed the standard of a widebody – owing to the reduced cabin footprint, seat pitch and constrained cabin architecture.
9.Thales avionics Optiq
Thales’s latest evolution of industry leading inflight entertainment (IFE) solutions. The system features a line of 4K HDR displays, dynamic power supply solutions, personalization and airline revenue generation capabilities. Optiq by Thales is the industry’s first line of intelligent 4K high dynamic range (HDR) displays enhanced with Samsung QLED proprietary technology. The new in-seat and cabin displays have a sleek passenger centric design focused on ergonomics and fits seamlessly into the modern cabin environment. Optiq provides passengers with the best experience in the air, with an unrivaled picture quality featuring more than one billion colors.
10. ZIM aircraft
The ZIMprivacy seat increases passenger comfort while also prioritizing privacy, giving more living space and a heightened sense of personal enclosure. The fixed seat back houses a special recline system offering the passenger several different body positions. Its fully mechanical assembly is easier to maintain than comparable electrically powered systems.
