The Wave cabin

Design — 14.05.18 BY Sylvie Peron

YASAVA Solutions SA, a leading design company based in Switzerland, was selected by US company ZED Aerospace to create the aircraft interior and exterior design for a new and disruptive air service, set to be launched in 2019.


The Private Airline, called AURA, is set to be a key disruptor in the US aviation market. This new service linking Miami, New York, Chicago and other key cities, starting with CRJ700 aircraft, is tailored for corporate and business passengers, and offers leading class service from private jet terminals.

YASAVA created the WAVE cabin, based on the bespoke AÏANA WAVE seat. Personal space is optimised for ultimate relaxation. Generous cabin baggage space is provided without overhead bins, resulting in an airy open architecture. YASAVA has incorporated OLED panels in the ceilings and on personal sidewalls, resulting in an emotive environment to match services and moods with adaptive aesthetics.


Unique cabin design elements and solutions are adapted from the ASTRAL Design, which represent the ultimate cabin design solution available for corporate aircraft.

“We are very proud to have been selected by ZED Aerospace, for whom our innovative approach, design excellence, immersive 3D virtual technology and attention to detail were responsible in YASAVA being given the honour to create the WAVE cabin,” remarked Christopher Mbanefo, Founder & CEO of YASAVA. ”However, what ultimately made the difference was when the customer sat in the AÏANA WAVE, and experienced a level of comfort coupled with our virtual reality expertise that was not only real, but beyond their expectation.”


“We were really impressed with YASAVA’s ability to take our requirements and elevate it to another level”

“The WAVE cabin design is certain to establish a new level of service, optimized for AURA, The Private Airline. We are so proud to have YASAVA on our team!” said Zander Futernick, CEO of ZED Aerospace.
