Airbus Company presented a series of projects in which the cargo holdings of aircraft can be turned into sleeping rooms for passengers with bunk beds and meeting rooms.

The concept was developed jointly with the French company Zodiac Aerospace and can be implemented already by 2020 on A330 aircraft. Also considered a solution for larger A350.

The project has developed sleeping modules with bunk beds. Each of them can be dismantled to make room for the cargo, so that airlines themselves can regulate the distribution of places for cargo and passengers.

This approach to commercial air transport is a step towards the comfort of passengers. We have already received very positive feedback from several airlines on our first models.

According to the project, a part of the airplane space can be used as a working space or playground for children. The additional “conference room module” will be equipped with armchairs and tables for working meetings. The projector will allow passengers to hold presentations or watch movies on the big screen.

Each module can be used separately, depending on the needs of passengers or airlines.
