Besides furnishing ceiling panels that illuminate the cabin with ambient LED light, the overhead stowage compartments covered by the agreement provide 40 per cent more space. Specifically, the Airspace XL bins, the largest overhead stowage compartments in the short and medium-haul class, can hold up to 60 per cent more luggage – eight pieces of hand luggage instead of the previous five, measuring 61 x 40.6 x 25.4 cm.

Andreas Furthmayr, Vice President Cabin Interiors Program, FACC, adds: “By using innovative fiber composite materials and new manufacturing technologies, we are able to create products for the aircraft cabin that contribute to consistent weight optimization.
