The 2024 show will welcome returning faces alongside 40 suppliers exhibiting at the show for the first time to present their innovations to attendees and airline buyers, including ASE Aviation Services Europe GmbH, Sabena Technics, WeSky, and others.

With the aircraft interiors market projected to reach USD $36.4 billion by 2027[1], the industry is seeing a steady incline and a growing need from the supply chain for specific products and services, including premium economy seating, in-flight entertainment services, and sustainable materials.

Experience innovations live and up close

As airlines and suppliers look to innovative seating and seating materials both for environmental and economic reasons, Comi Aerospace, a division of the Comi Group, will present its innovative Vesta aircraft seats, designed to blend design, comfort, premium quality, safety, and performance. Korean automotive seat company, DAS, will apply their technical expertise and innovation to create seats that prioritise comfort, safety, and lightness for airlines. With a longstanding history of supplying automotive seats to major brands like Hyundai, Kia, Volvo, and Renault, DAS is newly entering the aircraft seat business. Also entering the market is PETER-LACKE GmbH, which is developing new technologies to upgrade aircraft cabin interiors, aiming to improve coating processes for faster and more efficient application with reduced material usage.

Presenting its new technology solutions will be global leader in tire and construction reinforcement, composite technologies, and compounding, Turkish company Kordsa Teknik Tekstil A.Ş., which will present its product range including flame retardant prepregs, Nomex cores, honeycomb sandwich panels, and more, contributing to sustainable mobility. Professional Plastics, Inc. will showcase the next generation of its Pro-Mirror® aircraft grade mirror, ProLens® high-optic aircraft lens products, and Pro-Mirror® NextGen, which eliminates issues such as rippling, imperfections and distortion found in similar products. A new ACM laminate mirror that meets OSU6565, ProMirror® 6565, will also debut at AIX.
