Boeing has revealed its new enhanced interior for Next-Generation 737s, which incorporates multiple independent retrofit features into one flexible package, allowing airlines to customize an updated cabin interior in a style that supports its brand identity while remaining in line with the rest of its fleet.
The updated interior has been designed to offer improvements in passenger comfort and design elements to modernize the cabin. The package can include new LED lighting, updated forward and aft entry coves, Boeing Sky Interior sidewall panels and air grilles, and larger-capacity stow bins. The upgrades combine to create a greater sense of spaciousness at the ceiling area.
“Customers have been overwhelmingly positive about the aesthetics, functionality and flexibility of the new interior,” said Rick Anderson, VP of sales, commercial aviation services, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “As part of our commitment to delivering a competitive edge to our customers, we worked closely with our suppliers to minimize costs and maximize the impact and value of the new interior.”
Boeing collaborated with EnCore Interiors on the industrial design and with EMTEQ for the lighting. The companies’ close working relationship will enable Boeing to offer options tailored for each operator’s needs.
While Boeing continues to offer retrofits of the Boeing Sky Interior, the enhanced Next-Generation 737 interior offers customers another option for creating interiors to support their brands.
