Airbus unveils aircraft cabin of the future

Airbus engineers have created a virtual ‘concept cabin’ to give an insight into some of the innovations and technologies aircraft will employ by 2050.

Familiar class divisions of First, Business and Economy are replaced by personalised zones that offer flexible, tailored levels of relaxation, interactivity and working spaces.

Passengers will choose to travel in the Interactive zone, with a bar and electronic games where they can mingle and socialise. And those wanting quiet and solitude can choose the Relaxation zone.

Airbus' head of engineering Charles Champion said the aircraft of the future takes into account developments and the need to produce a lower carbon-emitting aircraft.

Central to each aircraft will be a ‘neural network’ based on the human nervous system.

Such a network will create an intuitive interface between each passenger and the aircraft, and will offer personalised in-flight services such as morphing seats, holographic pods and seamless digital access, all adaptable to individual needs and moods, The Daily Telegraph reported

Technological breakthroughs mean that passengers in 2050 will be able to:

• Benefit from advanced fuselage technologies offering touch-of-a button transparency for panoramic views of the scenery around

• Use seamless digital access; make video calls and phone calls from their seat to anywhere in the world

• Give themselves complete privacy by shutting themselves off from other passengers using 'holographic pods'

• Change the size and shape of their chair and swivel them to have a more comfortable flight
