Extending your success

An eye-catcher in Hall B6 was the turquoise ARTS logo and the Door Skin of the A380, which also shone in ARTS colours. Numerous interested visitors visited the stand of the expert for Industrial Engineering, Technology Consulting and HR Services. During the three days of the fair ARTS presented its know-how and spoke with numerous representatives of MRO companies, airlines and manufacturers. Already in the initial discussions, individual solutions for internal company processes, be it in the personnel or production area, were discussed.

With Andrea Piontek and Marc Bouzaid, the stand visitors had two long-standing ARTS colleagues with aviation expertise in the areas of work contracts, engineering and manufacturing services as well as technology consulting as discussion partners. The guests were also able to benefit from the expertise of Magdy Mustafa - with a wealth of experience in HR services - and Christian Broecker - with many years of expertise in the aviation industry. ARTS laid the foundation for successful cooperation at AIX.

The ARTS booth at AIX Hamburg 2019

Our ARTS experts had many exciting conversations and discussions again this year.

And the 13th Crystal Cabin Award goes to…

AIX is the platform for companies to meet potential partners and learn more about trends in interior design. Many exhibitors will present developments and innovations that significantly enhance passenger comfort. For example, the "Touchless Lavatory" or the innovative 3D printing for complex individual parts used in aircraft interiors by Diehl Aviation.

A highlight at Aircraft Interiors Expo will be the presentation of the Crystal Cabin Award for particularly revolutionary inventions that significantly improve the flying experience even in economy class. The "Oscar of the Aviation Industry" is awarded in eight categories:

  • Cabin Concepts

  • Cabin Systems

  • IFEC (In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity)

  • Greener Cabin, Health, Safety and Environment

  • Material & Components

  • Passenger Comfort Hardware

  • University

  • Visionary Concepts

In 2019, there were 106 entries from 22 countries, with three finalists per category.

In the "passenger comfort hardware" segment, for example, the German seat manufacturer Recaro won with its seat, which has a headrest in the head area and movable seat and back cushions. For more pleasant nights in economy class.

United Airlines and Panasonic have dedicated themselves to the topic of accessibility in in-flight entertainment on air travel and received the CCA in the Electronic Systems category. The aim is to facilitate the operation of in-flight entertainment systems for passengers with impaired vision or mobility by means of larger displays and voice recognition.

All winners of this year's award are listed on the Crystal Cabin Award website with their innovations.

Whether new lighting concepts against jetlag, biodegradable disposable cutlery or safe travel cots for babies, AIX offers a pool of new developments and outstanding ideas and concepts. It is the platform for numerous companies to jointly develop and realize visions.
