Video: Airbus unveils Transpose concept

Airbus’s Silicon Valley outpost is developing a modular cabin for widebody freighter aircraft that will provide new types of passenger experience that can generate additional revenue for airlines while making it quicker and easier to change cabins, even between flights. Through its Silicon Valley outpost A3 [A-CUBED], Airbus plans to develop and flight-test a cabin architecture that allows aircraft interiors to be rapidly and flexibly configured using modules that are pre-equipped by airlines or partners with options ranging from sleeping bunks to a soundproofed playroom.
