Aeromexico's UK designer

A UK company is breaking new ground by designing the interiors for Aeromexico’s new fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

Transport architecture specialist New Territory, where former Virgin Atlantic global head of design Luke Miles is a director, says it has focused on improving the overall passenger experience by updating features such as the bar area and lighting scheme.

The company says its design for the “on-board social space” marks a departure from the heavily-branded Business Class bar experience with limited seating seen in previous Aeromexico aircraft and is intended instead to be a “more welcoming” kitchen-style environment.

“The new designs position Aeromexico,  Mexico’s flagship global airline, as a leader in innovative aircraft architecture and sets a new precedent for future airline interiors,” Miles said.

“We’ve thought about aircraft architecture with a view to the future, looking beyond branded interior design and style that so often feels alien to aircraft interiors, as well as to the passenger. 

“Instead, we’ve been more sensitive to the airframe to create a space that feels more open, accessible, and more natural for passengers to move around.”
