The various modules will be located in the cargo compartment under the main cabin of the A330.
Christophe Bernardini, Chief Executive Officer of Zodiac Aerospace Cabin Branch, said: 'We are delighted to work with Airbus on this new and innovative project, which reaffirms our expertise in lower-deck solutions. This will allow airlines to swap them in and out during a layover.
