Passenger Comfort Is Key Focus for Innovative Aircraft Seating 2015

The Innovative Aircraft Seating Conference 2015 kicks off this week in Hamburg. The theme of this year’s meeting is Redefining the Travel Experience.

The agenda reveals an industry focused on balancing between airline needs for profitability and stable operations and passengers’ needs for comfort on both short-haul and long-haul flights.

The group will review the potential solutions offered by lightweight design methodologies and improved ergonomic designs.

Presenting their ideas are representatives from airframe manufacturers, equipment manufactures, leading design firms, and airlines who will brainstorm new solutions to the challenges of limited cabin space and complex certification requirements.

“The aviation industry is going through an innovative curve and the impact on the aircraft seating industry is already visible. The high demand on distinct cabin customization and flexible solutions for keeping the passenger experience to the highest standards has put pressure along the value chain for enhanced innovation in all levels.Seats have a huge impact on customer perception and flight costs, hence new lightweight materials, new IFE integration technologies and together with new cabin configurations are just a few of the reasons for the need to step up in seating design. “

Flight Chic will be there to cover the events and will share insights on Social Media. Look for in-depth reports to follow both on FlightChic and leading industry publications.
