Windowless Planes Offer Passengers Spectacular Panoramic Views

An international design agency has come up with an intriguing and innovative new aviation concept that has won them a prestigious award – windowless jets.




Technicon Design’s idea is not to ruin your views while cruising through the air, but to enhance them. This would be achieved by filming the exterior environment and displaying it on inside surfaces throughout the cabin. Rather than being restricted to a small window, passengers would experience a spectacular panoramic view of the world. Of course, it would also be possible to display other things on the screen besides the sky, such as movies.

While this may sound gimmicky, removing windows has the added benefit of weight reduction and would also simplify plane construction. It would also allow greater flexibility when designing the interior of the plane.

“The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a little different, but not just a fantasy,” Technicon’s Design Director Gareth Davies said in a news-release. “It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke discussion.”
