Airbus recently unveiled its concepts of air travel in the future. The focus of the airlines for now is cutting cost, making planes fuel-efficient and making them more lighter for gliding. These are some of the suggestions that were put forward by the Aircraft manufacturer company this year. But they are saying there will be much more new concepts till 2050 that will be developed and are currently under progress.
Let’s take a look at these concepts and discuss them a little:
- Gliding to land?
Airbus suggests that passenger planes should glide in the future, as that will decrease the noise as well as fuel emission. Moreover, gliding to the runway cuts short the distance and reduces distance for landing. The suggestion will help in many ways and is considered cost efficient as well.
- Transparent ceilings:
The second concept is much more towards the entertainment side. The concept is of having transparent ceilings of airplanes. The concept is beautiful, and will look awesome if implemented, though in morning sunshine will hurt a lot so some remedies need to be there like screen becomes dark by itself… while at night starts and clouds will bring in a more magnificent experience to flyers than the TV in front of their seats.
- Running On bio fuel:
If you want to reduce your carbon footprint then you have to use bio fuels. Airlines are also thinking of doing the same thing. The conversion from normal fuel to bio fuel will save a lot of fuel as well as will be more carbon footprint effective in the future.
- Virtual reality cabins:
The virtual reality cabins will enable the airplane authorities to turn the airplane in to a golf course as well as office or an entertainment hall if needed. The idea is raw and is in the beginning stages so time will tell how it will end up.
These are some of the ideas of future for air travelling. The ideas are nonetheless better and practical. Let’s see how much time it will take in the implementation. However, one thing is for sure the taste of these ideas is a farfetched one. As 2050 is far away and no one know who will live until then.
