Spanish carrier Vueling, part of International Airlines Group (IAG), has taken delivery of the first A320 incorporating the new Airbus cabin configuration. Thanks to an efficient use of the cabin and the selection of the latest generation seats, Vueling will offer enhanced comfort and more space to its passengers while adding six extra seats.
Vueling is the first customer benefiting from the new exit limits, which when combined with the Airbus Space-Flex module increases the A320 seating capacity from 180 to 186 seats while retaining the higher comfort level of the Airbus 18” wide seat. The extra capacity is found by more efficient use of the volume at the rear end of the cabin.
This innovative Airbus solution not only provides room for more seats, but also features a lavatory with full access to Persons with Reduced Mobility (PRM). The reconfigurable PRM-friendly lavatory is facilitated via a simple conversion process consisting on converting two Space-Flex lavatories into one Space-Flex PRM in a similar manner as those delivered on an Airbus wide-body aircraft. www.vueling.com
