Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 20 January 2010

From 30 January 2010, Air France is to gradually introduce on its short-haul flights, a brand new seat on its Airbus A319, A320 and A321 fleets operating on the domestic network.

Air Frances new short-haul seat, designed jointly by Air France and Recaro, which received an award for innovation at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, provides additional comfort and more space with:

2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) more legroom
An enhanced seatback with a natural 15 recline
A more streamlined and comfortable foam seat

This new seat is also more environmentally friendly. Weighing just 9.1 kg, i.e. 5.4 kg lighter than a conventional seat, the new Air France short-haul seat is 40% lighter which represents a reduction of 5,200 tonnes of CO2 per year.

"Following investment on the long-haul network with the new Premium Voyageur cabin class, Air France is now investing on the domestic network to provide passengers with a more comfortable seat that is also environmentally friendly," said Patrick Roux, head of marketing at Air France-KLM.
