The European aircraft giant Airbus has announced plans for sleeping facilities for passengers in the cargo hold of planes that could be operating in A330 wide-body jets from 2020.

The sleeper compartments “would fit inside the aircraft’s cargo compartment”, said Airbus and Zodiac Aerospace, which is a subsidiary of the French aerospace company Safran.

The modules “will be easily interchangeable with regular cargo containers”.

“Airlines will initially be able to choose from a catalogue of certified solutions by 2020 on A330” for the sleeper pods. The possibility of fitting them into A350 XWB airliners is also being looked at.
