BLAGNAC, France — Soon, every seat on an airplane could be a window seat! New concept designs are revealing how travelers will be able to gaze at the stars above in future airplanes. Aerospace giant Airbus are showing off their vision of next-gen cabins, which include an all-round view of clouds as you jet through them.

The Airspace Cabin Vision 2035+ concept also lets passengers tap on smart interactive windows that show travel time and let you explore your destination city. Unveiled ahead of the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg, the French company also says passengers will enjoy a greater choice of meals thanks to new pre-ordering concepts.

They believe that, by collecting your meal at the gate, food and packaging waste could be reduced by up to 15 percent. The company explain their ethos is “decarbonization and circularity at heart.”

“Right now, research shows the cabin can contribute between 10-20% to the aircraft’s overall environmental impact during its lifecycle,” Airbus officials write, according to a statement obtained by SWNS.

“Putting a focus on reducing this, Airbus brought together ten airlines and eight technology companies to feed into a vision that rethinks the way the cabin should look and feel, maintaining superior passenger comfort.”

Airbus found that one of the biggest levers in the cabin for reducing emissions is lightweight solutions. To achieve this, efforts should be focused on creating lighter, “bionic designs” that will help reduce cabin weight by up to 40 percent.

“As the world shifts to a more circular economy, empowered by the End to End digitalized data transparency, we are rethinking the materials used inside the cabin so they’re able to be recycled, reused and repaired during their lifecycle is also a key part of the 2035+ vision,” Airbus officials explain.

“Cabin lining and components will be developed for current aircraft using new materials and a complete introduction of these will be rolled out with the next generation aircraft.”
