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
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
No aircraft modifications are needed to install
the ECOS system.
In total, Air France plans to gradually equip
its 40 A320s and 11 A321s with 1,342 new luggage compartments
between September 2020 and September 2022.
“Air France will be the first airline to offer
these innovative luggage compartments. They will enable us to meet
the high expectations of our customers wishing to travel with
cabin bags only to save time during their trip. Boarding will be
smoother and faster, both for them and for our crews. This
represents a significant improvement in comfort and operational
efficiency,” said Catherine Villar, SVP Customer Experience Air
