Safran Seats unveiled a new portfolio of devices to fit the post-COVID-19 travel environment such as Interspace, Travel Safe by Safran Seats and Create with Safran Seats.
Safran Seats and transportation technology company Universal Movement announced an exclusive partnership to bring Interspace seat technology to market. The agreement will see Safran Seats take up the exclusive development and manufacturing of the Interspace portfolio, across Economy and Premium / Domestic Business class; an upgradable retro-fit solution for existing Premium Economy seating; and the Interspace Lite edition for Economy.
Universal Movement and Safran Seats are offering the Interspace equipment which improves premium economy passengers comfort, when travelling by utilizing two easily-deployable padded wings that fold out from the seat back.
These padded wings allow passengers to rotate and lean on a cushioned surface and thereby provides greater lateral support. The system is retrofit-able, which allows airlines to fit the Interspace technology onto a fleet without replacing existing seat units.
Safran Seats and Universal Movement are also working on an equipment adaptation called Interspace Lite, which gives airlines flexibility to easily reconfigure their economy cabins, by providing delineation and privacy between passengers by locking out either the central or outboard seats of a row.
The company has developed Travel Safe by Safran Seats, a broad set of patented solutions that are articulated around three families of objectives: social distancing without loss of density, touchless interactions and virus free surfaces.
To respect social distancing, Travel Safe offers equipment such as a Ringfence, a simple & efficient removable partition that isolates neighboring passengers. Likewise, Travel Safe touchless interaction equipment are touch less door actuation or pedal actuation of backrest recline. Finally, virus free incorporates a wide set of seats and tray table coating range which facilitates disinfection and cleaning.
These seats offer a new co-creation service to customers, called Create with Safran Seats. This service is specifically designed to envision, create, assess and converge on new solutions for airlines in a short period of time. This offer will lead to customized seats adapted to the post-COVID- 19 travel context.
