Etihad Airways Engineering and Inter-Informatics establish partnership and jointly present C-spacer divider and integration engineering services
C-spacer and other products will be part of the showroom at Etihad Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – Etihad Airways Engineering and Czech-based engineering firm Inter-Informatics have announced a partnership to jointly develop and market their engineering services and products for commercial airline customers and VIP aircraft operators. The collaboration focuses on aircraft cabin modifications and cabin interior products, including the recently launched C-spacer.
Developed by Inter-Informatics, C-spacer is a new, lightweight Business/Economy class cabin divider for single-aisle aircraft. It is designed to fit beneath the overhead storage compartments and to be fixed to the seat tracks, providing extra leg room while requiring only a minimal seat distance between the two cabins. The C-spacer can be customised to accommodate inflight entertainment (IFE), mobile connectivity and power outlets, as well as the trims and finishes to match the cabin interior. It is made from state-of-the-art carbon fibre and designed to be easily set up and dismantled, enabling quick aircraft configuration changes.
The C-spacer smart cabin divider, which was recently on display at the Dubai Airshow where it was installed in the Etihad Airways Airbus A320 testbed aircraft, will soon be on display at the Etihad Airways Innovation Centre, a multi-purpose hub which showcases the innovations of the United Arab Emirates' national airlines. Here, airline customers will have the opportunity see and test C-spacer in an aircraft setting.
Radek Režný, aerospace division director of Inter-Informatics, said, “It fills us with pride that C-spacer will be among the products presented together with the Innovations of Etihad Airways Engineering. We have always strived to be an innovative company, and C-spacer is the proof that we are going in the right direction.”
Abdul Khaliq Saeed, Etihad Airways Engineering Chief Executive Officer, said, “It is part of our strategy to establish meaningful partnerships with forward-thinking companies, like Inter-Informatics, in the cabin interiors industry. We want to ensure Etihad Airways Engineering can provide innovative solutions in this ever-evolving industry. We look forward to welcoming customers to our Innovation Centre to experience the full range of cabin interiors.”
