Lufthansa passengers can now enjoy a whole new flying experience on short and medium-haul routes. The first Airbus 321neo with the modern Airspace Cabin took off from Frankfurt for Fuerteventura on 4th September, 2021. In addition to Lufthansa, the new cabin will also be used by Swiss, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings in new aircraft of the Airbus 320 family.
Besides other improvements, the new cabin design has brought in a big change as far as its lighting scheme is concerned. The cabin design and the entrance area have been extensively redesigned and now appear brighter and friendlier. So-called Human Centric Lighting, a specially programmed, flexible lighting system, illuminates the cabin in warm red light, graduated intermediate tones to colder blue light. Depending on the time of day or night, the light in the aircraft cabin is thus geared to the passengers’ biorhythms.
Seating comfort has also been improved inside the aircraft. The side walls of the Airspace Cabin will in future offer passengers more space in the shoulder area. In addition, the modern washrooms are even more usable for people with limited mobility.
