Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has created a business jet cabin design concept which builds on the Airspace cabin brand and is initially proposed for the ACJ330neo family of aircraft, though it is also suitable other Airbus widebodies, such as the ACJ350 XW. Named Harmony, the cabin layout is based around concentric circles, like ripples on a pond.
Upon boarding, passengers enter a vestibule area. From this zone, turning left leads to the master bedroom, office and bathroom, while turning right brings passengers into a spacious lounge with seating grouped around round tables. Just beyond the lounge is a conference table, and beyond that there are four VIP guest-suites, each featuring an office that converts to a bedroom, plus an ensuite bathroom with shower. Seating for support staff and a galley make up the rear of the cabin, which can be adapted to serve both private and government customers.
“Harmony is a timeless and elegant design concept, because we dare to break the conventions that are traditionally imposed on us as cabin designers. Our creativity needs to be unique to fit the needs of our customers, as befits a host receiving their guests in their ‘world above the world,” stated ACJ’s head of creative design, Sylvain Mariat.
