Hong Kong Airlines has installed a newly
upgraded Business Class seat on its latest Airbus A350 aircraft.
In addition to a refreshing new look, the
new Business Class seat is also equipped with one of the most
advanced IFE systems from Thales Group, providing passengers with
an immersive entertainment during their travels.
All of Hong Kong Airlines’ 33 new Business Class
seats on the A350 are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration,
which guarantees all passengers direct access to an aisle and
privacy to work, rest and unwind.
With a simple touch of the seat
control panel, the seat can be reclined into different positions
or converted into a comfortable 78-inch full-flat bed.
For passengers who like a little entertainment
on board, Hong Kong Airlines has partnered with Thales Group to
install a brand-new IFE system into the A350 aircraft.
17-inch widescreen monitor as well as a touch-enabled integrated
handset, the new AVANT system promises passengers an enhanced
entertainment experience inflight.
Mr. Wang Liya, Hong Kong Airlines Vice Chairman and
President said, “Our latest Business Class offering and
state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system is the result of an
ambitious effort to revamp our premium services for our customers.
These are significant investments for the company, and will help
lead Hong Kong Airlines into a new decade of success.”
Hong Kong Airlines’ new Business Class product
on its latest A350 will be deployed on the Bangkok route for crew
familiarisation during its first month of operation. Following
that, the aircraft will serve Los Angeles regularly.
