At the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) 2014 Expo held this year in Anaheim USA, Airbus once again showcases its cabin innovations to match today’s and tomorrow’s needs. Visitors to the Airbus stand will be able to judge for themselves the quality of Airbus’ recent cabin offerings.
At APEX this year visitors and media will also be able to discuss with our experts the latest cabin innovations planned for the A320 Family and also of course those for the recently launched A330neo. Meanwhile, updates on A350 XWB test campaign and cabin will also be available on the Airbus stand where the A350’s efficient and passenger-conscious ‘flat-floor’ architecture will be demonstrated. And for the airlines’ flagship aircraft – the A380 – there will be an 80” screen with new high-definition cabin visualization.
Passenger comfort has always been a major design driver at Airbus, ensuring the best possible passenger experience across all its aircraft families. Thanks to wider cabin cross-sections, all Airbus aircraft offer an 18” wide seat in economy class – while the A380 can even offer up to 19 inches seat width in economy.
Visitors to the Airbus stand will be able to test and feel the space of this comfort standard in our specially configured Cabin Comfort Demonstrator. They will experience for themselves the difference between the Airbus-standard 18-inch wide seat – the modern comfort baseline for long-haul – and the 1950s-era 17-inch industry norm.
Airbus is the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer of passenger airliners, ranging in capacity from 100 to more than 500 seats. Airbus has design and manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, the UK, and Spain, and subsidiaries in the US, China, India, Japan and in the Middle East.
