Safran Seats develops a range of cabin hardware for safe air travel


Safran Seats has developed a range of designs named ‘Travel Safe’, which is designed to address three objectives: social distancing without loss of cabin density, touchless interactions and virus-free surfaces.

This news follows Safran Seats becoming the exclusive manufacture of the Interspace seat and ‘Lite’ variant, with a view to giving airlines a quick-fit option for improving comfort, social distancing and flexibility in economy cabins.

The social distancing aspect of Travel Safe involves equipment such as Ringfence, a simple removable partition that isolates neighbouring passengers. Other designs include touchless interaction equipment for suite door actuation, and pedal actuators for backrest recline functions. The virus-free solutions incorporate a range of coatings for seats and tray tables which facilitate disinfection and cleaning.

Safran Seats has also launched a co-creation service for customers, named Create with Safran Seats. This service is designed to envision, create, assess and converge on new solutions for airlines in a short period of time. This offer is intended to lead to customised seats adapted to post-Covid- 19 travel requirements.
