European aircraft giant Airbus announced on Tuesday that it is teaming up with Zodiac Aerospace to develop and market lower deck sleeping facilities for passengers that could be operational in A330 wide-body jets from 2020.

The sleeper compartments “would fit inside the aircraft’s cargo compartments,” Airbus said in a joint statement with Zodiac, a subsidiary of the French aerospace company Safran.

The modules “will be easily interchangeable with regular cargo containers, “the statement said.
