- Cabin Systems Category: M-Flex™ Duet
- Materials & Components Category: μLED Reading Light
HAMBURG, Germany (Apr. 3, 2019) – Collins Aerospace, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has won two awards across two categories at the 13th Annual Crystal Cabin Awards.
Each award was carefully judged and selected by a panel of 28 industry experts on the basis of enhancing the passenger experience through innovation, comfort and convenience.
A winner in the Cabin Systems category, the M-Flex™ Duet is a revolutionary cabin monument designed to transform the least optimized area of the cabin, the aircraft doorway, into a self-serve social zone or cabin attendant working area. During taxi, take-off and landing the compact monuments are stowed - meeting all regulatory egress requirements. During flight, the units unfold to stretch across the doorway providing a stand-up, branded and self-serve social area for a passenger to enjoy food and drinks, and it also provides additional crew working space.
