Safran Seats reveals at the Aircraft Interiors Exhibition two new business class seats: VUE and Unity.

VUE is adapted to long-haul flights on narrow-body airplanes. It is designed to offer passengers a similar experience to that of the most comfortable wide-body airplanes while maintaining an efficient cabin layout for the airline. VUE already has two launch customers, one on the Airbus A320 family, and the other one on the Boeing 737 family, and will enter into service in 2023.

The name VUE stems from the window-facing experience it delivers, giving each passenger a much more enjoyable view at all times. All passengers benefit from this experience due to the layout of the cabin, with reverse herringbone seats. This layout offers an optimized density while giving passengers a long bed with plenty of foot space. All travellers have direct aisle access with an easy exit even with the TV or meal table deployed. The privacy is excellent, with no direct eye contact and the possibility of adding a door to the suite.

Unity is a new generation of high-end forward-facing business class seats. Leveraging the benefits of its layout and its ability to provide all passengers with direct access to the aisles, it offers an innovative design, a spacious suite environment and multiple storage areas. The seat itself is extra-large compared to other seats in its category and offers the comfort of a spacious fully horizontal bed.

Unity is genuinely designed for privacy. The door option allows for completing a full suite, which can be increased thanks to a higher shell height option. It caters to both individual and companion travelers, with an adjustable central divider. Unity is able to propose the latest technologies developed by Safran Seats including Euphony, a wireless system dedicated to acoustic comfort.

Unity has already been selected by two customers and is available on wide-body aircraft such as Boeing 777, Boeing 787, Airbus A350. It will enter into service in 2023.

VUE and Unity have been ideated through internal design challenges, which leverage the best of Safran’s international teams in a competition to propose the most attractive products. Those concepts have then been developed through our product management process with a modular architecture that allows airlines to customize those products while offering a reduced lead-time to the market.
