The April issue of Aircraft Cabin Management is now online

Posted on 22 March 2018


The April issue of Aircraft Cabin Management is now online


With the annual Aircraft Interiors Expo rapidly approaching, the latest issue of Aircraft Cabin Management features an extensive preview of all the innovations you can expect to see in Hamburg this year. Make sure to visit our stand at 1E60, where you can pick up a complimentary copy of the magazine.

We also take an in-depth look at the nominees for this year’s Crystal Cabin Award, including Rockwell Collins’ new Valkyrie seat, which transforms into a bed, mould-breaking luxury suites from Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways, and accessible inflight entertainment for passengers with visual impairment from Bluebox.


Meanwhile, Qatar Airways recently celebrated the delivery of the first production Airbus A350-1000, which has been fitted with the airline’s new Qsuite. New technology and passenger comfort are two of the main drivers for the airline, and recent years have seen the introduction of the Boeing 787 in 2012 and Airbus A380 in 2014.


Other articles in the April issue include: 

Tougher than old leather
The usage of traditional textiles and leather in the cabin is being replaced by reengineered and synthetic materials. We examine this shifting trend and talk to some of the manufacturers leading the way.

Space for growth 
From the air to the ground, consumers increasingly expect to remain connected to the internet whilst travelling, leading to a boom in satellites providing inflight connectivity.


Meeting the comfort challenge
With the majority of passengers travelling in economy class, and economy seats becoming slimmer than ever, airlines are employing innovative design methods and new composite materials to ensure comfort isn’t sacrificed.


Open for business
It is becoming increasingly commonplace for airlines to provide fully flat business class seats, and in turn, those that want to stand out from the crowd have to look for new ideas to ensure their flights are memorable.
