Airbus brought a flight-test A350 XWB to EBACE 2016 to show to selected visitors, with a gallery of interior designs by various completion centers inside. One of those presented was created by the Jet Aviation Basel Design Studio, with renderings by ACA Advanced Computer Art.
“Our design takes inspiration from both high-end hotel and residential design philosophies, balanced with the most innovative new technology available in private aviation,” said Elisabeth Harvey, director of design at the Jet Aviation Basel Completions Center. “A large lounge and dining area is segmented into different areas for eating, relaxing and socializing. Created for the wow factor, this area is balanced by an elegant and extremely spacious private suite made up of master bedroom, bathroom and private lobby. A heated towel rail and a spacious walk-in shower feature in the bathroom; induction chargers are imagined within the bedroom nightstand; and electrochromatic shade systems transform the living space from private to open plan at a touch of a button.”
“We selected the Basel Completions Center to render an ACJ350 cabin interior for EBACE based on their demonstrated capabilities to execute an interior fit-out on wide-body and composite aircraft,” said Benoit Defforge, managing director at Airbus Corporate Jets.
“This appointment recognizes Jet Aviation Basel as one of the leading centers for wide-body aircraft completions, particularly for new-generation composite aircraft,” said Neil Boyle, senior vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Basel. “We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with Airbus to help the A350 become a most appealing wide-body VIP interior solution.”
Jet Aviation Basel has delivered 19 VIP Airbus cabins since 2000, ranging from the ACJ319 to the ACJ340-600.
