The new design is very similar to Mexico’s “confident chairs”.

The world we knew and left behind before we entered isolation To stop the outbreak of the corovirus responsible for Covid-19, it will not return and one of the most affected industries will be aviation.
The Italian design company Aviointeriors presented what it envisions for the new seats of the aircraft, around the healthy distance between passengers without losing seats for travelers.

According to reports Yahoo financeThese seats, called “Janus” (which resemble Mexico’s “confident chairs”), would consist of a series of three seats, with the middle seat facing in the opposite direction. The design was named after the two-sided Roman god and should be made of easier-to-clean materials.
Not only that, each seat would have a sign made of transparent material on each side to prevent one user’s breath from entering the other’s room.
Aviointeriors recommends that the seats in the emergency exits cannot be designed in such a way that they are separated by 17 centimeters of additional space.

The Italian company proposed a second solution called “Glassafe” and would have to put a plastic barrier between each seat. It is a more practical solution than “Janus” because only the barriers have to be attached and not the entire design in the cabin has to be changed. However, the rules of social distance of at least 1.6 meters between each person are not observed.
