With an order from TAM Linhas Aéreas, Airbus officially launched the PRM (Persons with Reduced Mobility) Space-Flex rest room as an option for operators of the A320 family. TAM will become the first AIRBUS customer to benefit from Space-Flex, the new option that offers more comfort to passengers.

The concept makes more efficient use of the space at the rear of the cabin, two rest rooms plus a galley can be efficiently accommodated in this space, offering TAM the following advantages:
· By liberating the area, cabin space will be enlarged, providing more comfort for the passengers;
· The option offers two rest rooms, each of a size comparable with those existing in the A320s, in other words larger than the competitions’ toilets;
· The PRM offers progress through a simple process of conversion: two Space-Flex toilets can be converted into one space for persons of reduced mobility, in a similar way to those used in wide-body Airbus aircraft.
