Making flying safer from COVID-19
Whilst the COVID-19 crisis has been devastating for airlines, it is incentivising the industry to think differently about their cabins. The design – which is officially called Interspace Comfort System – features two wings within the seat-back that can be unfolded to offer lateral support and prevent movement, leaving the middle seat of three vacant and creating a privacy barrier between seats. The concave padded shells, which are the same height as the seat, can be installed on 90 per cent of economy seats. The partnership with Universal Movement is part of a suite of post-COVID innovations which the French company plans to release under the Travel Safe brand.
