Diehl Aviation is expanding its presence at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg, the leading trade fair for aircraft cabins. Visitors can expect high-quality interactive exhibits demonstrating added value for passengers, airlines, and aircraft manufacturers. One of these is the Future Cabin, which will be premiered at AIX as a life-size mock-up. Under the motto “IMAGINE - you inspire we create,” the cabin and systems specialist will take visitors on a journey through three time zones: today, tomorrow, and the future.

The Future: World Premiere in Hamburg

The Future Cabin is certainly one of the most spectacular exhibits at AIX 2024. The mock-up offers a glimpse into the future of the passenger cabin, with windows completely rethought and partially replaced by displays. Bionic structures – inspired by nature – with recyclable materials allow weight reduction while meeting the highest design standards. The cabin will also become intelligent: Diehl Aviation relies on consistent digitalization to better plan energy and water consumption, simplify repairs and maintenance, increase passenger comfort and support crew operations, among other things.

A second future highlight is a new crew rest compartment. Until now, single-aisle aircraft on long-haul flights have not had a separate rest area for the crew. The new crew rest compartment designed by Diehl Aviation uses the space between the first row of passenger seats and the door area. Two beds can be integrated here and can be folded together in seconds, giving the crew much-needed comfort, especially on long-distance flights.

Tomorrow: Focus on eco-efficiency

Eco-efficiency is one of the key issues in global aviation. At AIX, Diehl Aviation will present the latest products that will make flying more lightweight in the near future. Take the ECO Bracket, for example: The ultralight bracket made of recycled composite waste is 50 percent lighter than conventional brackets yet only half as expensive to produce. Or the ECO Sidewall: The sidewall is 10 percent lighter, the CO2 footprint in production is reduced by 19 percent, and fiber-containing production waste is reduced by one third. These are values that set new standards. Additional solutions and innovations for more eco-efficiency can be experienced interactively with Diehl’s ECO Efficiency Demonstrator.

Today: First-class solutions in a broad product range

Diehl Aviation is a leading systems supplier for aircraft manufacturers and airlines worldwide and offers its customers a broad portfolio. Key aspects of this portfolio can be experienced at the AIX with the help of impressive exhibits, including solutions for water and wastewater systems on board passenger aircraft. Systems for efficient airflow in the cabin play a key role in passenger comfort and greater eco-efficiency by using lightweight, recyclable materials. Diehl Aviation will present relevant exhibits at the trade show and make the most important functions and interconnections tangible.

The Aircraft Interiors Expo will take place in Hamburg from May 28 to 30, 2024.
