Safran wins Crystal Cabin Award for The CUBE


This year, Safran’s innovations have been recognized with a Crystal Cabin Award in the Cabin Systems category for the new CUBE, developed by Safran Cabin.

The CUBE is a galley waste disposal system that saves space and ensures a clean environment for cabin crew. Effortless integration, simple operation and easy maintenance make the CUBE a standout choice. Unlike conventional galley waste disposal units, the CUBE reduces water usage by 30%. In addition, it has a UV light system, that helps eliminates odors and prevents bacteria growth. 

“We are honored to receive a Crystal Cabin Award for the CUBE. This galley waste disposal innovation supports the hard working cabin crew and contributes to a safer, cleaner flying experience for everyone”
Nathan Kwok, EVP Sales and Marketing, Safran Cabin,

The Crystal Cabin Award is the international award for excellence in aircraft interior innovation. This year, over 100 concepts from all over the world were presented in eight categories.
