Air France has unveiled its new long-haul travel cabins exclusively available on board its Airbus A330s.
The company offers a new travel experience in its Business (36 seats), Premium Economy (21 seats) and Economy (167 seats) cabins. 15 aircraft will be completely redesigned by 2020 thanks to a global investment of 140 million euros.
The first flight equipped with these new cabins connecting Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Accra (Ghana) took off on February 3, 2019.
Until the end of the winter season1, customers will thus be able to enjoy these cabins on flights to Accra (Ghana), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and Houston (USA).
As from the 2019 summer season, the new Airbus A330 will progressively serve Accra (Ghana), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Cotonou (Benin), Lagos (Nigeria), Niamey (Niger), Bengaluru and Delhi (India) as well as Seattle, Chicago and Dallas (USA).
Business, peace of mind and conviviality
The new Business seat, adapted to the dimensions of the Airbus A330, offers an unparalleled travel experience.
Completely redesigned, the seat converts into a lie-flat bed that is 2m long and 57.1 cm wide for jet lag-free flying across time zones. Whether travelling alone or with a companion, the new seat adapts to every need.
Customers can choose to enjoy greater proximity when they’re travelling with someone or total privacy thanks to a sliding panel separating the seats.
The ambient lighting emphasizes the details of the new Business cabin’s decor where leather and the Air France brand’s symbolic accent have pride of place.
A brand new, extra-wide HD touch-screen measuring over 18.5 inches offers Business customers over 1,400 hours of entertainment. Its intuitive interface comes with a new more user-friendly handset.
The toilets, inspired from the cosmetics universe, and the self-service bar in a blue and Champagne colour scheme have also been redesigned with customers’ well-being and comfort in mind.
