Airbus Debuts Harmony Cabin Concept for VIP Widebodies
Airbus Corporate Jets has created a new cabin design concept, called Harmony, which combines the comfort and space of a widebody cabin with the practicality to suit the longest of flights.
Harmony seamlessly combines the benefits of Airbus Corporate Jets’ VIP widebodies such as comfort, space and quietness, to produce a consistently harmonious customer experience. It builds on the Airspace cabin brand from the Airbus airliner family.
Initially proposed for the new ACJ330neo Family, which features new-generation engines and Sharklets, Harmony can also suit other Airbus widebodies, such as the ACJ350 XWB.
A holographic globe, showing aircraft position, greets entering passengers. Turning left leads to the master bedroom, office and bathroom, while turning right brings travellers into a spacious lounge with seating grouped at round-tables that encourage social interaction.
Concentric circles, like ripples on a pond, are also a feature of the new cabin layout.
Just beyond the lounge is a conference table, and beyond that there are four VIP guest-suites - each featuring an office that converts to a bedroom, plus an ensuite bathroom with shower.
Seating for support staff and a galley make up the rear of the cabin, which can be adapted to serve both private and government customers.
Airbus aircraft have the distinction of being the world’s most modern and comprehensive family. All of the corporate jet versions have intercontinental capability, with some - such as the ACJ330neo and ACJ350 XWB Families – going beyond to deliver “nonstop to the world range”.
All of today’s Airbus aircraft include the protection and simplicity of fly-by-wire controls, the benefits of Category 3B autoland, and time and cost-saving centralised maintenance.
More than 190 Airbus corporate jets are in service on every continent, including Antarctica, highlighting their versatility around the clock around the world.
