Prandtlplane ARchitecture for the Sustainable Improvement of Future AirpLanes

PARSIFAL aims to improve the air transport through the introduction of a box-wing aircraft, called “PrandtlPlane”, which can improve the passenger capacity of A320/B737-type aircraft from <200 to >300, without increasing the overall dimensions.
