Boeing unveils new 737 interior

29 Apr 2009 by Mark Caswell

Boeing has unveiled the redesigned interior of its next-generation 737 aircraft. The 737 Boeing Sky Interior features “787-style modern sculpted sidewalls”, and improved public address speakers and ventilation vents.

Seven airlines will debut the new 737 interior from late 2010: Flydubai, Continental Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, GOL Airlines, Lion Air, Norwegain Air Shuttle ASA and TUI Travel PLC.

Among the features of the revamped interior are “soft, blue-sky-like lighting overhead”, and larger, pivoting overhead stowage bins. Reading light switches have also been redesigned so passengers can find them more easily, and also use them without accidentally pressing the flight-attendant call button.

There are also new integrated air vents and improved noise-dampening materials designed to reduce overall cabin noise, as well as integrated speakers to improve sound and clarity of public address announcements.

Boeing says it has drawn on “years of research used to design the interior for the 787 Dreamliner”, with the new 737 interior featuring “787-style modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals that draw passengers' eyes to the airplane's windows, giving passengers a greater connection to the flying experience”.
