Airspace Explorer is an Airbus dedicated cross-programme flight test platform for demonstrating new innovations which could be featured in the future in all Airspace cabins. Displayed innovations are focused on passenger experience, digitalisation, health on board and sustainability.
The Airspace Explorer cross-programme platform is taking advantage of a specially configured A350-900 Airbus flight test aircraft fitted with an award winning Airspace cabin to test and showcase a number of customer-centric cabin innovations.
Airspace Explorer represents Airbus’ efforts to pioneer and explore the future flying experience by:
- fostering the Airspace Innovations and exploring customers & passengers future needs;
- delivering a more personalised travel experience, thanks to new services for the passenger;
- enabling more efficient and sustainable aircraft operations and maintenance.
All the systems on-board Airspace Explorer are currently in the prototype stage and are tested on ground and in flight, as part of the technology development process. They are meant to move from innovations to systems in service in the near future.
To achieve this, Airbus is continuously working with its customers and its industry partners to identify and develop new technologies and innovations that will improve and define the future flying experience.
Airspace Explorer is the ambassador that will continuously evolve to explore new technologies as they become available, driving Airspace innovation and delivering leading passenger experience.
