Abstract

The idea is to equip standard cargo containers with interior to allow new services for passengers while cruise phase of a long range flight. While takeoff and landing the access would be blocked. The system shall be modular to give the operator the flexibility to install different modules in a short time to react at actual needs. The modules are standardized and can include different interiors, for example sleeping rooms, rest rooms, offices, living rooms, play grounds, wellness or fitness rooms, prayer and ablution areas.

LOWER DECK REVENUE AREA

The idea is to equip standard cargo containers with interior to allow new services for passengers while cruise phase of a long range flight. While takeoff and landing the access would be blocked. The system shall be modular to give the operator the flexibility to install different modules in a short time to react at actual needs. The modules are standardized and can include different interiors, for example sleeping rooms, rest rooms, offices, living rooms, play grounds, wellness or fitness rooms, prayer and ablution areas. It is known that aircraft cargo compartments are used for transportation of cargo payload. Furthermore, in some cases, cabin crew rest compartments are also installed in the cargo compartment with access to the aircraft cabin while flight. Our idea is to provide passenger compartments in the shape of a cargo container that can be installed very easily into the cargo compartment of a passenger aircraft. The cargo compartment and the cargo loading system shall not be modified. That ensures the operator to provide passenger service or cargo transportation with the same aircraft. These modules shall be mechanical linked to the aircraft via the cargo loading system. One module is the basic module that will be connected to the aircraft systems (power and data, stair house). The basic module includes all relevant systems to provide other additional modules with relevant passenger supply systems. This basic module can be docked to a fixed installed stair house or can include a stair house that can be adapted to the aircraft structure. The basic module ensures power supply coming from the aircraft and communication with the ca...
