CAPA has created a database of aircraft interiors
that includes seat models, dimensions and manufacturers, inflight
entertainment (IFE), wireless inflight entertainment (W-IFE) and
inflight connectivity (IFC).
The database also includes a dedicated focus on
personal electronic device (PED) transformations – information
which is imperative to the ongoing discussion and to the future
decisions on touchless interactions post-COVID19.
The research highlights the fact that 90%
of the passenger seat market is shared by Collins Aerospace,
Safran Seats and Recaro Aircraft Seating.
Avionics dominates the IFE market for widebody commercial fleet,
with an estimated 72% market share, followed by Thales Inflyt
Experience and Burrana (previously Rockwell Collins).
Derek Sadubin, CAPA Managing Director, said, “We are more committed than ever to creating and
delivering new tools that arm our members with the right
intelligence and strategic insights to weather the current global
storm. We designed our new Interiors Database to be the principal
resource for granular aircraft interiors data, capturing all
commercial cabin components in the current and future aviation
market. This allows clients and analysts to better understand
trends behind our ever-changing industry. By dynamically linking
the Interiors Database to CAPA's extensive Fleet Database, users
have a real-time one-stop shop for each aircraft profile."
Targeted at OEM suppliers, airlines, MRO organisations, lessors and the wider air travel industry, the
database helps to identify new business and investment
opportunities, conduct market analysis and forecast trends.
