Innovations in aircraft interiors will have a deep impact on passenger experience but also on airliners.
5 benefits will contribute to an overall improvement in cabin conditions
The “smart plane” of the future may not even offer seat-back entertainment, but instead boast a turbo network that fuels possibly hundreds of smart devices on board.
The ability to be connected on the ground and increasingly up in the air – combined with airlines’ growing commitment to digitally-led service innovation – will allow passengers to be in the know about the progress of their journey in real-time.
Connected airlines of the future will look beyond simply providing a “smart” inflight experience and aim at extending that service across the entire trip – from the moment you leave home to the moment you arrive at your destination.
AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS AND CABIN IMPROVEMENT
In our increasingly connected world, the possibilities for the future of “smart” aircraft are endless. Cabin interiors will continue to evolve thanks to the entire aircraft systems development.
UNIQUE AND PERSONALIZED TRAVEL EXPERIENCE
Future aircraft cabins will propose passenger unique experience of travel through the following benefits:
- Personalized inflight entertainment
- Captive audience
- Virtual reality
- Perfect airlines seat
- Sleeping rooms
- Sensory experience
20,000 aircraft cabins will be connected by 2025
As an example, the Airbus A350 XWB, known as “the only digital native aircraft,” is 100 % equipped with in-flight connectivity and is uniquely designed to integrate systems, while making the most effective use of space and weight to provide a seamless door-to-door connected experience.
Smoother communications between connectivity nodes in the aircraft mean passengers could potentially control their own environment – lighting, window shades, seat movement and climate – directly through their smartphones and personal devices, with crews tapping the technology to optimize cabin systems, operational efficiency and personalized service.
There have been great improvements in passenger experience throughout the aviation industry, but customers are still looking for that smooth and easy travel experience, where they feel valued and important. This paper offers a glimpse into the 5 technological takeaways that will revolutionize passenger experience in the coming decade.
