Delta Air Lines has selected Zodiac’s ‘Innovative Space Interior System’ (ISIS) to refresh the cabins of its Airbus A319/A320 fleet, product manager customer experience Chris Babb has informed employees.
The carrier has also selected Zodiac’s ‘Project Amber’ interior for its Boeing 757-200s, says a Delta flight attendant, describing Babb’s message. However, Runway Girl Network can confirm that Project Amber has been rebranded as ISIS by Zodiac to ensure family commonality.
ISIS boasts recyclable sidewall panels, pod-like passenger service units (PSU) with easy-to-use interfaces, and clam shell overhead bins. In January Delta announced it would refresh the interiors of 225 narrowbodies, though it declined to comment on whether it had selected ISIS for its A320 family aircraft and 757s at that time.
Zodiac has generated a lot of excitement for ISIS, and secured multiple customers in the retrofit market. In a recent promotional video, Zodiac suggests that ISIS “isn’t simply about a dramatically improved passenger experience, it also helps forward thinking airlines drive additional revenue opportunities”.
Modular in nature, ISIS dramatically reduces part numbers – from 11 to 4 – which is meaningful to airlines. Zodiac will unveil a widebody version of ISIS at the forthcoming Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.
