New cabins on board the Airbus A330
Air France brings colour and additional services on board its new Airbus A330 travel cabins.
The new Business seat, adapted to the dimensions of the Airbus A330, guarantees you unparalleled comfort. It can be transformed into a fully-flat seat bed 2 metres long and 57.1cm wide to cross time zones without feeling tired. Alone or with a travelling companion, the new configuration adapts to the desires of our customers. They enjoy improved conviviality and a moment of sharing or extra privacy thanks to a sliding screen.
Comfort is a priority on board the Airbus A330’s new Premium Economy cabin, with additional space – a 130° seat recline in a fixed shell, one of the widest seats on the market with 48.5cm, a 102-cm seat pitch, lumbar support adapted to different body shapes, additional storage space, a wider footrest and a 13.3-inch HD screen. The softer seats and wider leather armrests have also been redesigned.
The Economy seat has also been redesigned to offer additional comfort, with more space between the armrests, reinforced ergonomic foam and a 118° seat recline, 79cm legroom, a wider tray table and a larger, state-of-the-art 11.7-inch 16/9 HD touch screen.
