Airbus Corporate Jet Centre imagines a new level of innovation and comfort for airline passengers

Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) is introducing full-height mini-suites to airline first class - previously only certificated for private aviation.

This new step in cabin innovation has been designed by its in-house Creative Design Studio and already fitted to an ACJ319.

Each suite features a 2.5 m˛ individual and cleverly furnished space, including a large seat that is convertible into a 33" by 79" fully-flat bed. This private space has been carefully thought out to provide the most convenient environment, and is outfitted with several ingenious storages areas, including a redesigned overhead stowage bin, plus a versatile folding table, that is equally well suited for dinner or work and a 32" HD screen.

The design of these unique and complex spaces challenged ACJC on technical constraints, including pressure and temperature regulations, air-flow and lighting, while still providing a secure and comfortable area.

Strengthened by its VIP customer’s satisfaction and based on its experience, the Airbus subsidiary is now working on full-height suite concepts for the A380. “Our contact with airline companies showed us that this kind of product could be adapted to airlines, matching their branding, culture and operations” says Sylvain Mariat, Head of the Creative Design Studio.

“Through this approach, ACJC wishes to capitalise on its avant-garde process on VIP market to offer to airlines’ demanding passengers state-of-the-art technologies and innovations, while satisfying specific regulations and restrictions” added Joël Frugier, ACJC General Manager.
