Airbus Corporate Jets and the Italian hypercar Atelier Pagani Automobili have introduced this slick cabin design for the ACJ319neo, called Infinito.
Unveiled at EBACE last month, a key feature of the Infinito cabin is its sky ceiling, which can bring a live view of the sky above the aircraft into the cabin – or display other images. This creates a greater sense of space within the cabin.
“Art and science can walk together hand in hand: this is the Pagani philosophy. The combination of state-of-the-art composite materials never used before in an aircraft, such as CarboTitanium, with the typical design language of Pagani Automobili, has always represented our signature. Applying our Renaissance touch into the wider spaces of Airbus Corporate Jet cabins is the beginning of an exciting new venture for us,” said Horacio Pagani, founder & chief designer of Pagani Automobili SpA.
Airbus’ ACJ320 Family already has the widest and tallest business jet cabin, while being similar in size externally, and Infinito builds on this for even more of a passenger-pleasing experience.
“In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards,” said Airbus Corporate Jets Managing Director Benoit Defforge.
Pagani’s design team created the initial Infinito design, including its look and feel, while Airbus Corporate Jets’ designers contributed their experience in aircraft design and compatibility.
Curves inspired by nature form a pathway through the cabin, as well as featuring in the shell-shaped valances and walls between zones – including one between lounge and conference areas, which switches from opaque to transparent at the touch of a button.
Décor is reminiscent of that in Pagani hypercars, with natural soft-leather carpets and a wooden floor contrasting with man-made carbon fibre in furniture and wall frames.
The ACJ319neo will fly eight passengers 6,750nm or 15 hours.
