Cabin of the Future: Airbus 2050


Unveiled at the Paris Airshow in London last week, the Airbus 2050 Concept Cabin offers a whole new flying experience inspired by nature. The aircraft's bionic structure mimics the efficiency of bird bones, which are optimized to provide strength where needed. An intelligent cabin wall membrane controls air temperature and can become transparent to give passengers open panoramic views.

Personalized zones replace traditional cabin classes to offer tailored levels of experience. Passengers have the option of joining an interactive conference, enjoying a holographic game of golf, shopping in a virtual changing room, or reading the kids back home a bedtime story.

"Our research shows that passengers of 2050 will expect a seamless travel experience while also caring for the environment,” said Charles Champion, Airbus Executive Vice President Engineering. “The Airbus Concept Cabin is designed with that in mind, and shows that the journey can be as much a voyage of discovery as the destination.”
