Airline passengers on long haul flights could soon be stretching their legs – in the cargo hold.As well as beds there would be play areas for families with small children which would include giant video screens and activities such as a slide. There could also be a medical zone , lounge bar area and a conference roomAircraft maker Airbus and aircraft equipment and systems maker Zodiac Aerospace have partnered to develop and market lower-deck modules with passenger sleeping berths. The modules, which would fit inside the aircraft’s cargo compartments.They would offer new opportunities for additional services to passengers, improving their experience while enabling airlines to differentiate and add value for their commercial operations. The new passenger modules will be easily interchangeable with regular cargo containers during a typical turnaround if required. The aircraft’s cargo floor and cargo loading system will not be affected at all, as the passenger module will sit directly on it. Airlines will be initially be able to choose from a catalogue of certified solutions by 2020 on A330 for retrofit and line-fit markets. Offering sleeper compartments on the A350 XWB airliner is also being studied. The innovation builds on the experience of both Airbus and Zodiac Aerospace in producing and integrating lower-deck crew-rest facilities.Head of Airbus cabin and cargo Geoff Pinner commented said: “This approach to commercial air travel is a step change towards passenger comfort. “We have already received very positive feedback from several airlines on our first mock-ups. “We are pleased to partner with Zodiac Aerospace on this project which will introduce a new passenger experience and add value for airlines.”Zodiac Aerospace chief executive office Christophe Bernardini said: “We are delighted to work with Airbus on this new and innovative project, which reaffirms our expertise in lower-deck solutions. “An improved passenger experience is today a key element of differentiation for airlines.”

Predviđene putničke kabine u Airbusu

Putnici, vjerojatno oni nešto dubljeg džepa, uskoro bi na letovima avionom mogli spavati u posebno osmišljenim kabinama – u teretnom prostoru zrakoplova, piše CNN.

Europski se proizvođač aviona Airbus, udružio s francuskom tvrtkom Zodiac Aerospace kako bi kreirali ''putničke module'' koji bi, kako sada stvari stoje, aviokompanijama mogli biti dostupni 2020. godine.

Spomenute module, ističu iz partnerskih tvrtki, aviokompanije moći će iznositi i unositi u avion ovisno o potrebama, a kabine, koje će biti smještene direktno na teretnom prostoru, neće ometati ukrcavanje i prijevoz putničke prtljage i ostalog tereta. Osim kabina za spavanje s krevetima na kat, skice Airbusa i Zodiac Aerospacea predviđaju i prostor za obitelj, poslovne sastanke i medicinsku pomoć.

- Ovakav pristup komercijalnim avionskim letovima korak je naprijed u putničkom komforu. Već smo za naše makete primili jako pozitivne komentare nekoliko aviokompanija – poručio je u priopćenju za javnost Geoff Pinner, Direktor Airbusovog kabinskog i teretnog programa.

Cijene novih modula za aviokompanije i kasnije za putnike još nisu poznate, no predviđeno je da će putnici kupovati redovnu kartu za svoje sjedalo ze zatim moći dodatno nadoplatiti za ležaj, po cijenama koje će određivati aviokompanija s kojom lete.
