Aviointeriors, the Italian company producing aircraft cabin interiors and passenger seats, has developed two new seating concepts for after the COVID-19 crisis.

One of the designs is called “Glassafe”, a kit-level solution that can be installed on existing seats to make close proximity safer among passengers sharing the same seat. “Glassafe” is made of transparent material to make the entire cabin harmonious and aesthetically light, but perfectly fulfilling the objective of creating an isolated volume around the passenger in order to avoid or minimize contacts and interactions via air between passenger and passenger, so as to reduce the probability of contamination by viruses or other pathogens. “Glassafe” is supplied in various executions with fixing systems to the seat that allow easy installation and removal.

The other option is called the “Janus Seat”, and this proposal is distinguished by the reverse position of the center seat of the triple to ensure the maximum isolation between passengers seated next to each other. While passengers seated on the side seats, aisle and fuselage, continue to be positioned in the flight direction as usual, the passenger sitting in the center is facing backwards. Each place of the “Janus” seat is surrounded on three sides by a high shield that prevents the breath propagation to occupants of adjacent seats.

Both seat-concepts are made of easy cleaning and safe hygienisation materials.
