Lufthansa starts flights with new Airspace cabin

New passenger experience on short and medium-haul

New innovative cabin improves passenger experience

  • More seating comfort
  • 40 percent larger luggage compartments
  • Modern lighting

Lufthansa passengers can now enjoy a whole new flying experience on short and medium-haul routes. Thanks to a new innovative cabin, the airline is noticeably improving travel comfort.

Seating comfort has been improved: the side walls of the Airspace Cabin are designed to offer passengers more shoulder room.

The new overhead bins have a forty percent larger volume and can hold sixty percent more suitcases, as they can be stowed vertically in the bins.

The overhead storage area is 40% larger than before

The cabin design and the entrance area bright and friendly. The flexible lighting system illuminates the cabin in colours from warm reds to cooler blue light. Depending on the time of day or night, the light in the aircraft cabin is geared to the passengers’ biorhythms.

The modern washrooms are more usable for people with limited mobility.

The first flight with the new Airspace Cabin was from Frankfurt to Fuerteventura on an Airbus 321neo on 04 September 2021.

In addition to Lufthansa, Swiss, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings will also be introducing the new cabin in their new Airbus 320 family.
