Lufthansa unveils innovative new cabin

The Airspace cabin aims to improve the travel experience on short-haul flights

Lufthansa has unveiled new cabins on select routes featuring overhead bins that are 40% larger and more user friendly as they allow for luggage to be stored vertically.

In addition, the cabins now appear brighter and feature a flexible lighting system that is geared to the passengers’ biorhythms. The cabin is illuminated in warm red light or colder blue light, depending on the time of day or night. Passengers will also have more space in the shoulder area. In addition, the redesigned washrooms are accessible for people with limited mobility.

Lufthansa Group head of customer experience Heike Birlenbach said: “Regardless of the crisis, we continue to focus emphatically on a premium offering for our guests. For us, premium means providing high-quality, individualised and relevant offers for all our passengers at all times. With the new Airspace Cabin, we are significantly improving the travel experience on short-haul routes.”

The Airspace cabin will also be implemented on Airbus 320, operated by Swiss, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings.
