INT ER IOR S I NNOVAT ION cabin design
XL Bin for the A320 Airspace cabin
2020 will see FACC demonstrate its new ‘Airspace XL
Bin’ for the Airbus A320 Airspace cabin, claimed to be
the biggest overhead stowage compartment in the
short- and medium-haul aircraft segment. FACC
developed the XL Bins in close cooperation with
Airbus, with the newly designed overhead stowage
compartment offering space for eight items of baggage
instead of the previous five, with a total weight capacity
of 96kg, while the unit itself only weighs 26kg – the
result of substantial engineering efforts.
FACC also manufactures the entrance area and
ceiling panels for the A320 Airspace cabin which, apart
from functioning as panelling, also contributes to a
uniform and pleasant lighting scheme in the cabin.

see AIM Altitude’s
ideas for longhaul
AIM Altitude is unveiling two new projects in 2020:
an innovative galley system and a flexible
destination space, both designed to make flights
more comfortable, especially in long haul.
Arca is a galley system based on trending
meal-service innovations within the industry.
The design makes use of a new meal-pack system,
which reduces the galley space required and
enables a rethinking of galley carts, fundamentally
removing the design limitations of galleys. The
space-efficient design of Arca gives airlines the
possibility of adding an extra row of seating or
destination monuments in the space gained. In
addition, Arca offers options for recycling, waste
reduction and greater passenger choice.
