-Seats have a huge impact on customer perception and flight costs!
With rising fuel prices looming on the horizon, airlines cannot afford to miss out on the opportunity to reduce costs by further minimizing the weight of their interior design. Less carbon consumption and a further range with an increased passenger payload are the major motivators driving innovations in seating design.

At the same time, airlines need to have a distinct cabin interior design in order to bind customers and to comply with their demands for comfort and safety: enhanced and innovative solutions for seating comfort and functionality, ambience and entertainment are an absolute must-have for OEMs, airlines and suppliers. Therefore the challenge is to minimize seat weight but at the same time optimize seat ergonomics and still meet with legal restrictions.

Last but not least: IFE. IFE is what customers are expecting and where airlines can differentiate. With the new FAA Advisory (which describes the new acceptable means to gain approval to install electronic components integrated in seats on aircraft) IFE is a big challenge for everybody involved in aircraft seats.

Main tpoics include:

Identify requirements for future seats: Trends and demands of customers, wireless IFE, tablets
New Materials and Technologies: Lightweight vs. cost? Lightweight construction (Composites); Materials and designs to reduce seat weight and space to save costs and improve aircraft´s efficiency
IFE integration solutions: Contactless seat power, new lightweight IFE solutions, wireless IFE
Maximize passenger comfort in minimal space: Research of ergonomic/human factors; translation into seat design & intelligent designs for optimal usage of cabin space
Ergonomics: How can objective and subjective comfort perception and measurement come together to create the perfect seat adapted to the passenger´s activities and needs?
Certification processes, international safety regulations and certification barriers: What´s next and what can be done – potentials and threats of new materials (composites); Impact of regulations on closer integration between seat and IFEC - FAA Advisory Circular AC-21-49
