Passenger spaces within most future advanced mobility aircraft will be dramatically smaller and outfitted with the latest technology advancements. Interior componentry from Lighting to Inflight Entertainment & Communications will all need to be spatially smaller and much lighter than in todays larger commercial airliners. Access to personal power and wireless charging will be a necessity for tomorrows passengers as well. As the leader in cabin connectivity solutions Amphenol has already helped define the future with our light weight & simple to use products.

Passenger Applications

  • IFE & Communications Internal Lighting
  • Air Conditioning
  • Water & Waste Management Safety Systems
