Italian Designers Created Models Of Aircraft Interiors For The World After The Pandemic
Italian designers Aviointeriors offered options for changing the placement of seats in economy class salons, which could appear in aircraft after the end of the coronavirus pandemic.
As CNN reminds, these same designers previously attracted attention with the idea of standing places in passenger liners.
Now they offer two options for passenger accommodation, the purpose of which is social distance and protection of people," according to the new requirements."
The "Janus" option involves a row of three seats, with the Central one turned in the opposite direction. In addition to the fact that passengers are most removed from each other, they are separated by a partition "of transparent material."
As CNN notes, it is not specified whether it is intended to fill the entire cabin with rows of such seats, but the row near the exit can not look like this because of security requirements.
The second option does not require major repairs to the interiors of traditional aircraft.
The "Safety glass" design involves separating passengers with a transparent partition, which "creates an isolated space around the person." As CNN reminds, the distance between passengers still does not meet modern medical recommendations of 1.5-2m.
Aviointeriors told the American TV channel that airlines have already shown interest in both design options.
After the designers finalize their proposals, they must be approved by aviation safety regulators.
