German BDLI shows cabin concepts at Aircraft Interiors Expo
At Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) is displaying a joint concept of tomorrow’s in-flight experience, realized by its Competence Network Cabin/Cargo.
Following its claim “Imagine – innovations flying tomorrow”, the BDLI stand in Hall B7 is visualizing five path breaking evolutions of in-flight experience, anticipating market needs for future cabin and cargo systems.
The concepts displayed at the show are the result of a team approach, in which Airbus and international partners developed a vision together for the very first time.
Starting with a scenario process and reflecting market needs, the participants co-created an integrated approach of optimizing airline customer experience and onboard comfort levels.
All displayed solutions follow the network’s idea to optimally bundle various technologies and key competencies available in the market, in order to optimize development, construction, production as well as customization of future aircraft cabins and cargo systems.
A visual tour through the BDLI stand focuses on central aspects of passengers’ experience while being on board of future aircraft: The multi-media presentation centers on the key issues “Connectivity Cloud” for optimal connection and guidance of passengers while aboard an aircraft, “Maximum Space Architecture”, ensuring the use of cabin space exclusively for passenger accommodation, intelligent “Storage Management” systems for smart hand luggage handling onboard, “Hygiene Lavatory” for optimal cleanliness and individual services and “Active Surfaces”, enabling seamless functionalities in comfort and entertainment.
Exhibitors of the Competence Network Cabin/Cargo comprise leading aircraft manufacturer Airbus, AOA apparatebau gauting, B/E Aerospace, Diehl Aerosystems, Hutchinson Aerospace, Recaro Aircraft Seating, Sell and Zodiac Cabin Controls.
