Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW) has announced that Lufthansa has become the first Airbus customer to use the new and larger overhead bins called "Airspace L Bins" for their aircraft.
From early 2025, Lufthansa is going to get 38 A320s refitted with the new bins. This retrofit solution can be installed within 3-5 days, providing minimum cabin modifications. The Airspace L Bins optimize airline and passenger needs, allowing for 60% more cabin luggage space.
Airbus Head of Commercial Services Europe Charbel Youzkatli says, “We know from talking with airline customers that bigger bins are a clear need to enhance the passenger experience. As with the XL bins, the L bins provide more space with the added advantage of a plug and play retrofit. We are thrilled to see Lufthansa as the first to offer the L Bins to its passengers and to reap the efficiency benefits it brings to aircraft turnarounds.”
EFW has been awarded earlier this year by Airbus as manufacturer for the Airspace L Bin collaborating closely with the Airbus design team to offer a well-fitting, cost-efficient and sustainable product.
"We are very glad Lufthansa is taking advantage of Airspace L bins as first customer of Airbus," says Jordi Boto, CEO of EFW. "Becoming supplier of this cabin retrofit solution is showing that we have full capabilities to support customers with cabin interior systems.”
