Air France to Install Safran's New ECOS Luggage Compartments on A320s and A321s

Air France is to become the first airline in the world to equip its Airbus A320 and A321 single-aisle short and medium-haul aircraft with Safran Cabin's latest ECOS luggage compartments.

The ECOS (Efficient Cabin Open Space) system offers up to 60% more storage capacity than the luggage racks currently available and consists of new bins, ceiling and cove panels that provide a lower shelf height for ease of loading and visibility.

No aircraft modifications are needed to install the ECOS system.
