Airspace by Airbus on the A350 XWB
The A350 XWB Family incorporates Airbus’ new cabin experience: Airspace by Airbus. This philosophy offers the perfect space for optimizing passenger well-being and airline performance, while delivering a next-generation flying experience.
Airspace by Airbus highlights the company’s commitment to passengers with four key pillars: comfort, service, ambience and design.
The A350 XWB’s 221-inch fuselage cross-section was specifically designed for an optimum travel comfort in all classes of service – providing ample room to incorporate the widest seats of any jetliner in its category, while also allowing greater lateral movement and more personal space for passengers on long-range flights.
By offering an extra inch of width in economy class compared to the 1960s-era 17-inch seat standard – when people were smaller and long-haul flights were rarely more than five hours – Airbus is focused on meeting the modern requirements of travellers, as long-range flights are now more frequent and cover greater distances. The A350 XWB also provides more space at shoulder level due to straight sidewalls, as well as more overhead stowage space for stress-free boarding and easier access in flight. Welcome on board!
With its brand new fuselage cross section, the A350 XWB provides passengers with superior comfort in all classes. The combination of cabin spaciousness, wide seats, and innovative moodlighting creates a unique feeling of well-being and ensures that all passengers arrive refreshed and relaxed.Passenger experience is further enhanced by the next generation HD in-flight entertainment, wireless internet and Smartphone connectivity available on the A350 XWB. Welcome on board!
The very latest in-flight entertainment products are smartly integrated into the A350 XWB eliminating bulky under-seat boxes and allowing for the aircraft’s flat floor, benefits which both help maximise passenger seating space.
Airspace by Airbus’ features for operators include a range of new galley/lavatory options such as modular Space-Flex to maximise trolley capacity, wheelchair-accessible lavatory configurations to suit individual airline requirements, and freeing up of main deck space to allow for additional seating.
Ambient lighting technology and wide windows help turn the passenger experience into one that travellers cannot wait to repeat. Full-colour LED lighting enables airlines to brand their cabin in a weight-efficient way using millions of colors. Passengers arrive at their destination refreshed as the lighting can help reduce feelings of jetlag.
With the quietest cabin in its class, the A350 XWB allows travellers to whisper – not shout – and still be understood. And first impressions matter – which is why Airbus has designed a unique welcome dome that will attract passengers as soon as they board the aircraft.
Adding to the pleasant atmosphere is the A350 XWB’s award-winning cabin design, which incorporates clean shapes, straight lines and clear surfaces in all cabin elements, as well as a unique, customizable welcome area.
These signature design elements will be incorporated across the complete family of Airspace by Airbus cabins – a consistent design language that creates the signature Airbus cabin feel. In addition, this aesthetically-pleasing design offers not just a “feeling” of space,” but real space that enhances Airbus jetliners’ superior passenger experiences.
