Zephyr Aerospace LLC, a San Francisco startup, has announced the introduction of its sleep seats, providing for sleeping and social distancing for economy plus passengers on international flights, the company said.
The lie-flat seats, designed for economy class flights, provides a social distancing-compliant airline seat/bed combination for premium economy passengers.
Zephyr´s seat and bed combo provide budget travelers with the same privacy as business class travelers. The non-mechanical sleep seats have limited movable fixtures and are made with the lightweight composite materials, reducing direct maintenance costs for airlines. A telescopic ladder provides quick and easy access to the upper area and can be removed after boarding.
