These Redesigned Airplane Seats Allow You to Lie Flat and Keep Social Distance

This is the Zephyr Seat by Zephyr Aerospace, a lie-flat airline seat designed for economy class travelers on long-distance flights. It’s social-distance compliant and offers privacy and comfort. Its patent-pending design optimizes the use of the available space in the cabin by allowing passengers to lie completely flat, lounge, or sit upright with their legs fully extended.

The Zephyr Seat can be retrofitted to existing commercial aircrafts, such as Boeing and Airbus. Airlines can upgrade to memory foam seats, black-out curtains, OLED displays, etc. Each Zephyr Seat provides a completely private 78” lie-flat bed. There is no loss in seating due to its state-of-the-art “stacked” seating configuration.



Zephyr Aerospace, which has partnered with aerospace design company Style & Design, recognizes that economy class hasn’t evolved and that most airline seats haven’t changed since the 1970s. These dated fixed-upright seats are tough to sleep in and force unnatural postures over a long duration, which is detrimental to one’s health.
