Airbus 2050 vision

Airbus has unveiled its new concept cabin, its vision of flying in 2050. Think seats that mould to your body shape, a 360-degree panoramic gallery and virtual golf game. A futuristic concept of air travel in which passengers will be able to enjoy sunny or starry skies through a transparent cabin roof has been presented by Airbus.

The cabin of the future follows last year’s unveiling of the Airbus concept plane, packed with technologies to reduce fuel burn, emissions, waste and noise as well as jet lag illnesses. In the cabin concept, new personalised zones replace the traditional cabin classes.

The ‘vitalising zone’ helps passengers relax, with vitamin and antioxidant-enriched air, mood lighting, aromatherapy and acupressure treatments.

In the ‘interactive zone’, there are virtual pop-up projections taking passengers to whichever social scene they want to be in, from holographic gaming to virtual changing rooms for active shoppers.

The ‘smart tech zone’ is tailored towards the more functional-oriented passenger with what Airbus describes as “a chameleon-style offering, to meet individual needs ranging from a simple to a complete luxury service, but all allowing you to continue life as if on the ground”.
