There’s many many things I didn’t cover during Aircraft Interiors Expo. Here’s a few things that caught my eye at the show… some things I’ve written about, others in mere passing. More of a pictorial
Because at Trade shows – especially shows such as Aircraft Interiors Expo – there’s a lot to see. Where possible, I’ll talk about the product… but some of these are going to be picture only.
First up.. the A330neo cabin mock up – covered in detail here.
Avio Interiors new Columbus C4 seat was interesting, but I found their tablet holders to be far more interesting….
A 2KU raydome? Must be GoGo!
As well things like seats AIX shows off other important things you need on a plane. For example… Emergency Exit slides (by EAM)
and of course, Life jackets
More seats? How about the Thompson Vantage – as used by Aer Lingus and a variety of other airlines
Crew rest is important too (if you ask any long haul cabin crew), so there are companies who build them too.
How about the smallest galley I can find anywhere? This is one from ATR:
Need something a little larger? Companies build bigger ones too if you have a bigger plane
Of course, you’ll need trolleys to go into your galley. They sell those too.
How about an IFE system or two? Here’s Lumexis‘s G4 FTTS system. It’s based on Android, and is extremely responsive, with data sent from a central server via Fibre to the seat .
Or if you’re a smaller airline trying to make money from your seat-back space, the Lumexis iPax is a great way to install a system on the cheap to deliver IFE (and again, responsive and customisable)
How about seatblets and seat buckles? Yes, you need them on a plane too. You’re covered there too:
How about cots for infants? Cots are important too:
As well as carpet…
And seat coverings…
Even portable IFE systems such as AirFi
How about overhead bins? We’ve got those too. This by Boeing…
and this by Airbus
There is so much more to show – but sadly, disk space is not forever (and not every stand likes a photographer papping images).
Hopefully, some of the products on show might end up on the planes you end up flying aboard.
