Airbus Corporate Jets has unveiled new interior designs for its corporate jets.
Called Melody, it features “flowing lines inspired by the curves of nature, such as hilly horizons, rolling rivers and desert dunes. These flowing lines are represented in both the main pathway through the cabin and the curved walls of zones within it”.
The new concept also focuses on providing a more attractive environment that is both quieter and better adapted to providing sound and vision in a “home cinema” setting.
“A key feature of Airbus corporate jets is the better travel experience that they deliver – through freedom of movement and enhanced sociability as well as their greater space and comfort – and the new Melody cabin highlights this benefit over traditional business jets,” said Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy.
Airbus Corporate Jets’ Head of Creative Design and Concepts, Sylvain Mariat, apparently identified customers’ “shared values, such as the relaxation drawn from nature and quiet and comfortable settings”.
New technologies – such as weight-saving carbonfibre in tables and cabinets and the simplification that comes from greater use of wifi – makes the cabin lighter and increases the aircraft’s range.
Deliveries of the ACJ320neo will begin at the end of 2018.
More than 180 Airbus corporate jets are in service around the world, flying with companies, individuals and governments on every continent, including Antarctica.
