The event  returns as the industry is forecast to return to profitability in 2023, with more than 4.2 billion passengers set to take to the skies over the next 12 months[i]. The 2023 event is on track to exceed expectations, with the industry’s leading airlines, lessors and business jet operators expected to attend, ready to source next-generation products and solutions that will transform the passenger experience.

AIX will deliver the  platform for product specifiers to see and test more than 1,000 products from leading global airline suppliers based in 30-plus countries. Among those returning to the event, major OEMs Boeing and Airbus will be joined by some of the leading players operating in the interiors sector from seating specialists Safran, RECARO Aircraft Seating, JAMCO Corporation and HAECO Cabin Solutions; and in-flight entertainment and connectivity providers Panasonic Avionics, Thales Group, Astronics Corporation, Latitude Aero, and Bluebox Aviation Systems.

Polly Magraw, event director, Aircraft Interiors Expo, said: “It is great to see the recovery of the industry maintaining pace. While there is still a long way to go back to pre-pandemic levels, the industry is taking the right steps, and we’re delighted to see airlines embracing the opportunity to transform their business operations to meet the evolving expectations of passengers. After the return of AIX in 2022, we’re excited to get back to business, creating even more opportunities for attendees to connect, learn and source the latest innovations. After what was one of our most successful years for new exhibitor launches, we can’t wait to see what the industry has in store for 2023.”
