Airbus wins Crystal Cabin Award at APEX with Connected Cabin

Airbus, together with gategroup, Recaro Aircraft Seating and STELIA Aerospace, have won the 2019 Crystal Cabin Award in the category “Best Customer Journey” with the Airspace Connected Experience. Unveiled as a concept during the APEX Expo last year, it will usher in a new personalised experience for passengers and provide opportunities for improving airlines’ ancillary revenues and operational efficiencies. The platform will link in real-time interconnected core cabin components, including the galleys, meal trolleys, seats, overhead bins and other cabin elements. It will allow passengers to receive a much more personalised travel experience. Airbus is working with additional suppliers to expand the services linked to the Connected Experience.

Soeren Scholz, Airbus’ SVP Cabin & Cargo Programme said: “This seamless inter-connectivity within the cabin will be of tremendous benefit to passengers who will be able to enjoy individually tailored, personalised and high-quality inflight service.”
