Yasava Wants to Put Wall-Sized OLED Screens Instead of Windows on Private Jets

The aviation industry had its worst year yet in 2020, and it’s bracing for even worse to come. That only applies to commercial flying, though.

As recent figures indicate, the sudden and world-reaching developments of 2020 did not affect the air mobility of the one-percenters. If anything, what with travel restrictions on the ground and several lockdowns in certain parts of the globe, many of them traveled by private jet more than they did before.

For them, Yasava Solutions has an idea that should make private flying even more luxurious and pleasant. The Swiss design company specializes in “flight couture,” which means offering personalized services for private jets. Their latest idea, according to the Robb Report, is to replace the windows on the aircraft with large OLED screens that could offer an ever-changing and ultra-customizable environment.

In addition to the wow factor, this would also serve to reduce the carbon footprint of the aircraft interior. According to Christopher Mbanefo, CEO of Yasava, these screens would allow to replicate any cut or finish, from leather to wood or stone, when used to cover furniture. “We can create amazing finishes without one tree being felled,” he tells the media outlet, noting that it can take up to 200 years to grow a single tree used in aircraft interiors.

The screens would also offer the chance to customize the interior depending on the customer. For example, you could have a more business-like environment or render the interior family- or even kid-friendly.

As part of the company’s push for sustainability, the proposed redesign would include materials like wool and leather from eco-conscious producers, and recycled aluminum. Mbanefo estimates this would instantly translate into a reduction of the interior’s carbon footprint by 80 percent. Moreover, a new, blockchain-linked platform, Oxi-Zen, will allow members to buy carbon offsets to render their flying more carbon neutral.
