EBACE 2018: Airbus highlights Harmony cabin
Airbus Corporate Jets has unveiled a new VIP cabin design concept, called Harmony, which builds on the Airspace cabin brand developed for airline customers.
Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has unveiled a new cabin design concept, called Harmony, which seeks to combine the comfort and space of a widebody cabin with the practicality to suit the longest of flights.
Harmony, which builds on the Airspace cabin brand, was initially proposed for the new ACJ330neo Family. It can also be adapted to other Airbus widebodies, such as the ACJ350 XWB.
ACJ Head of Creative Design Sylvain Mariat says the concept breaks the conventions that are traditionally imposed on cabin designers. A holographic globe, showing aircraft position, greets entering passengers. Turning left leads to the master bedroom, office and bathroom, while turning right brings travellers into a spacious lounge with seating grouped at round-tables.
Just beyond the lounge is a conference table, and beyond that there are four VIP guest-suites - each featuring an office that converts to a bedroom, plus an ensuite 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.
Also at EBACE 2018, Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) displayed an ACH130 in Stylence configuration — the first of its type to be delivered since the launch of ACH and the first time the aircraft has been displayed in public.
