JEKTA, the Switzerland-based developer of the PHA-ZE 100, Passenger Hydro Aircraft – Zero Emission 100 amphibious aircraft, has unveiled the first interiors for its economy class Traveller and full executive Corporate cabin configurations. 

Mindful of the particular needs of operations that alight on and take off from both water and land, the interior designs acknowledge and incorporate the requirements of the innovative, new JEKTA family of amphibious airframes. The ergonomics focus on implementing cutting-edge solutions to deliver a combination of comfort, safety, and functionality within an airframe that provides multiple operating parameters. The interiors will adapt to support a range of applications, including multi-leg, regional passenger flights, experiential high-end tourism voyages, or intense road-show itineraries for corporates and governments. Cargo, medevac, VVIP, and search and rescue variants will follow. 

Industrial design studio MBVision applied its twenty years of aviation experience to integrate simplicity, modularity and lightness with durability, cleanliness, new materials, and functionality. Design highlights include thin modular seating, which offers superior comfort while light in weight, and an aft lavatory, which will feature in the first production airframe. As a non-pressurized airframe, the PHA-ZE 100 design features are intended to shape an on-board experience which blends contemporary aviation form with elements from the marine sector: wooden-style flooring, galley-style refreshment or bar areas and expansive panoramic windows through which light pours emulate the at-sea experience, giving a brand-new feeling of space and freedom within the aircraft. 

Connectivity is incorporated, enabling passengers and crew to be productive, entertained and in touch, even on short flights.

Gayo Aviation, the global provider of private and specialist aviation services, will receive the first Corporate cabins, and MEHAIR, the Indian operator, will initially welcome the Traveller cabin to connect communities living around water.
