LAN and TAM Show Off New Cabin Design

Good news for South America's skies: LAN Airlines and its affiliates and TAM Airlines, members of LATAM Airlines Group, unveiled the new unified design for their cabins today.

Two aircraft already have the new design, including a LAN Airbus A320 that serves domestic routes within Chile and a TAM Airbus A321 that flies domestic routes within Brazil. Take a look at the new decor:

Best of all, all of the new Airbus A320 and A321 short-haul aircraft will soon get the new cabin interior and seats. Beginning in 2015, LATAM Airlines Group will incorporate two new aircraft models into the long-haul fleet, with the Boeing 787-9 and Airbus A350-900 that will include the new cabin design and offer two classes of service, Economy and Premium Business.

And we say it looks pretty nice: The fabric for the seats in the short-haul cabins was designed incorporating four colors and two different leather textures. For the new long-haul cabins, the fabric incorporates more cloth elements to create maximum comfort for longer flights. We hear the design was inspired by South America’s colors and textures, combining natural tones.

LATAM Airlines Group collaborated on this project with international design consulting firm Priestmangoode.
