Panoramic windows coming to Boeing aircraft?

Boeing have revealed that they are working on developing ‘panoramic windows’ which are effectively the size of 3 standard sized airline windows.

“With multiple potential locations based on the airplane type, it offers customers an unparalleled perspective of the world,” GKN Aerospace states.

“We are thrilled to formally confirm our partnership with GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business for the development of this fantastic feature on the BBJ, the largest airplane window available in the market,” said Boeing Business Jets President David Longridge.

Peter Somers, President of GKN’s Fokker Services business added: “We are proud to announce the next step for the Skyview Panoramic window together with Boeing Business Jets. The innovative technology applied in the largest window in the market, enhances passenger comfort and is now also available for BBJ MAX airplanes.”

It’s unlikely that we’ll see this anytime soon on standard passenger jets though as the innovation is pencilled in for the Boeing BBJ MAX series for 2018, but if that proves a success, then who knows for the future?
