Airbus has unveiled a new cabin concept called Harmony.
Launched at EBACE in Geneva, the new luxurious cabin is designed to enhance comfort, space and quietness in Airbus Corporate Jets’ wide body aircrafts.
The new cabin was initially proposed for the new ACJ330neo, but it will be adaptable to other ACJ wide bodies.
Benoit Defforge, president of Airbus Corporate Jets, said: “Long-haul flights provide time for productive work and socialising, as well as rest, and ACJ’s Harmony cabin concept is wonderfully well designed to enable all of these, while bringing the world within a single flight.”
“Harmony is a timeless and elegant design concept, because we dare to break the conventions that are traditionally imposed on us as cabin designers. Our creativity needs to be unique to fit the needs of our customers, as befits a host receiving their guests in their ‘world above the world,” stated ACJ’s head of creative design, Sylvain Mariat.
The cabin layout is based around concentric circles, like ripples on a pond.
Upon boarding, passengers enter a foyer area where a holographic globe, showing the aircraft’s position, greets entering passengers.
From there, turning left leads to the front of the plane where a master bedroom with en-suite bath, a private office and bathroom and a crew rest area are settled. Turning right brings passengers into a spacious lounge with round table seating areas.
Just beyond the lounge is a conference table, and in the rear there are four VIP guest-suites – each with an office that converts to a bedroom, and en-suite bathroom with shower.
Seating for support staff and a galley make up the rear of the cabin, which can be adapted to serve both private and government customers, the company said.
