31 May 2023

Ranking among the world Top 3 in Premium passenger seats, STELIA Aerospace is looking forward to exhibiting at AIX 2023, where its latest innovations will be showcased on its +350 sq. metres stand (7A30, hall B7).

The successful OPERA® family is growing with a new wide-body version, while new innovative features are available to enhance passenger comfort and well-being. Also, the brand new RENDEZ-VOUS® will be showcased in its Solo version for the first time!

– OPERA® WB, the widebody version of the reverse herringbone Business Class seat:
This year at AIX, STELIA Aerospace will reveal the widebody version of OPERA®, extending the family of its exclusive reverse herringbone Business Class seat, launched in 2020 for single-aisle aircraft.
Now available on Airbus A350 platform and soon on Boeing B787 platform with a first launch customer, OPERA® WB bears many of STELIA Aerospace’s distinctive and luxurious features for endless passenger comfort (wide full-flat bed, extra-large 20” monitor screen, fully integrated door for increased privacy, extra stowage capacity…). Thanks to its simplified state-of-the-art design, OPERA® WB enables easy installation and wiring of screens.
A confidential, revolutionary and visionary version of OPERA® Business Class seat, ultimately
developed by STELIA Aerospace, will also be disclosed at AIX 2023.

– New innovative features for an enhanced passenger experience:
STELIA Aerospace offers new exclusive features to improve passenger well-being during the flight, thanks to invisible and non-intrusive sensors placed into its seats. These will be presented exclusively at AIX 2023:
– Crew Service App: In addition to the increasing tendency for privacy, this app connects the
passengers and the cabin crew, thanks to sensors integrated in the seat. The crew is consequently
made aware of the passenger needs and can offer adapted services depending on the different phases
the passengers go through (sleep, awakening phase, stress) or their needs (water bottle sensor, position
of armrests…)
– Sleep care: Developed and patented by STELIA Aerospace, this new feature helps mitigate
the effects of jetlag for passengers. Seat sensors provide data about the passenger’s level of tirednessor sleep, so that the cabin crew can accordingly adapt their offer of drinks, blankets…

– After the “Honeymoon” version, STELIA Aerospace showcases the Solo version of RENDEZVOUS®:
Launched in 2022, RENDEZ-VOUS® is one of the widest Business Class seats on the market, codeveloped by STELIA Aerospace and Design Investment, creator of the original design concept.
A staggered Business Class seat designed for widebody platforms, RENDEZ-VOUS ® comes in two versions: the ‘Honeymoon’ – designed like a comfortable and vast sofa for a unique “at home” feeling, the only seat today offering this new way of using space, largely influenced by contemporary home styling aspects – and the ‘Solo’, showcased for the first time at AIX 2023.

« At STELIA Aerospace, we are continuously renewing and enhancing our range of Premium Business class seats, to better serve our customers in their pursuit for excellence in passenger experience and secure their daily operations by delivering on Time and on Quality. AIX remains ‘the’ event for the commercial aircraft cabin industry and we are excited to showcase our latest range of products and services, results of our yearly innovation works, and to welcome you at the STELIA Aerospace booth », said Thierry Kanengieser, VP Cabin Interior STELIA Aerospace.
