Team Everest

Team Everest is a multinational team, working with Airbus on improving the in-flight waste management. A common practice nowadays for airlines is to have more passengers in the aircrafts, which results in less space for the crew and creates an issue when it comes to cabin waste. Current practices, such as trash compacting, have proved to be expensive and complicate further the procedure for flight attendants, caterers and cleaning companies.
Mindful of the issue, the team seeks to improve the handling of waste on board in terms of volume, weight and recyclability.

Team Satisflying (2014-2015)

We are team Satisflying. We are working to improve hand luggage management on short haul flights.

The project is very challenging because the airplane is a very limited, technical, highly developed and controlled space. Any small changes affect the system as a whole and for this reason the environment is somewhat static. To counter this we are also looking out of the box and seeking answers beyond redesigning existing solutions.

We are a multicultural and multidisciplinary team based in Aalto and KTH Stockholm and starting late February also Shanghai.
