ACJ debuts Harmony cabin concept for VIP wide-bodies

Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has created a new cabin design concept, called Harmony, which combines the comfort and space of a wide-body cabin with the practicality to suit the longest of flights.

ACJ says Harmony combines the benefits of its VIP wide-bodies – such as comfort, space and quietness – to produce a consistently harmonious customer experience. It builds on the Airspace cabin brand from the Airbus airliner family.

Initially proposed for the new ACJ330neo family [the ACJ330-800, derived from the A330-200, and the ACJ330-900, from the A330-300], which features new-generation engines and sharklets, Harmony can also suit other Airbus wide-bodies, such as the ACJ350 XWB.

“Long-haul flights provide time for productive work and socializing, as well as rest, and ACJ’s Harmony cabin concept is wonderfully well designed to enable all of these, while bringing the world within a single flight,” said ACJ president Benoit Defforge.

“Harmony is a timeless and elegant design concept, because we dare to break the conventions that are traditionally imposed on us as cabin designers,” said ACJ head of creative design Sylvain Mariat.

“Our creativity needs to be unique to fit the needs of our customers, as befits a host receiving their guests in their ‘world above the world’.”

A holographic globe, showing aircraft position, greets entering passengers. Turning left leads to the master bedroom, office and bathroom, while turning right brings travelers into a spacious lounge with seating grouped at round tables that encourage social interaction.

Concentric circles, like ripples on a pond, are a feature of the cabin layout. Just beyond the lounge is a conference table, and beyond that there are four VIP guest-suites – each featuring an office that converts to a bedroom, plus an ensuite bathroom with shower.

Seating for support staff and a galley make up the rear of the cabin, which can be adapted to serve both private and government customers.
