JetBlue will become the first airline to introduce the A320 Family ‘Airspace by Airbus’ cabin.
The agreement, announced at APEX EXPO, means JetBlue customers will experience this newest A320 Family cabin from late-2020.
Highlights of the new A320 Airspace cabin include a unique welcome experience, the largest overhead storage bins in its class, increased interior width, ambient LED lighting and a contemporary lavatory design with new comfort features.
Robin Hayes, President and CEO of JetBlue, said: “The Airspace cabin is aligned with our efforts to create an experience as comfortable as your own living room. We are looking forward to our continued partnership with Airbus. The launch of the new Airspace by Airbus interior will take JetBlue’s commitment to customer experience to the next level.”
Dr. Kiran Rao, Deputy to COO Customers at Airbus Commercial Aircraft, commented: “We are delighted to be working together with JetBlue on the next generation of cabin experience for the A320 Family.
“Airspace offers the kind of features previously reserved for a few long haul cabins, so bringing that to our best-selling aircraft family is really going to be noticed by airlines and passengers.”
Ingo Wuggetzer, Airbus’ VP Cabin Marketing, added: “As industry leader and trendsetter, JetBlue has the ideal DNA to launch the world’s newest single-aisle interior with us.”
