International. Fraunhofer's partner, Gentherm, has developed an executive class seat with air conditioning (Aviation Double Seat). This has a combination of active seat ventilation using thermoelectrics and heat control using various heating elements.

This leads to an optimal temperature control of the seat surface, as well as to a continuous removal of moisture. The result is a permanently comfortable and dry climate on the seat surface.

The Aviation Double Seat was created on the basis of the findings of the iSPACE project (Innovative systems for the environment of custom aircraft cabins) funded by the EU and developed by Gentherm. In addition to the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP in Valley, Germany, nine European partners of the aviation industry also participated. As part of the project, participants have worked on technologies that will improve the comfort of passengers, allowing them to adjust their personal interior environment, as well as adapt the temperature and air flow to meet their personal needs.

At 2016, there were 3.700 million passengers in civil aviation worldwide. According to a survey by the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, increased prosperity, attractive tourist destinations, the expansion of global trade relations and liberal travel arrangements have increased the number of passengers year after year. The Fraunhofer IBP constantly investigates the subject of airplanes to bring all these people to their destinations in a healthy, comfortable, ecological and economic way. The interior climate in aircraft cabins occupies an important place in the research work of the institute.
