Etihad Airways appointed Factorydesign as one of three design agencies that combine to form the Etihad Design Consortium, to provide expertise in passenger insight, as well as product and aircraft cabin interior design. The consortium developed the future onboard brand and product experience on the airline’s new fleet of A380 and B787 aircraft.
2014 saw the launch of the world’s most highly customised cabin interiors for the B787 Dreamliner and A380 fleets. The revolutionary cabin interiors and products challenge the convention in passenger experiences of airline travel.
In the pursuit of excellence every aspect of every class has been redefined in terms of delivering a remarkable guest experience. Ground breaking innovation is evident in all elements of the cabin interiors spanning unique configurations, to revolutionary seat designs, innovative custom galleys and lavatories through to dedicated spaces and zones for passengers to enjoy.
A determination to challenge the paradigm in every detail has required manufacturers to deliver products, which defy convention creating a new benchmark in aviation industry standards.
