Berlin-based German carrier airberlin last week celebrated the delivery of the first Next-Generation 737-700 with the new Boeing Sky Interior.

airberlin received its first 737-800 with the new Boeing Sky Interior in mid-February making the airline the first to operate both aircraft types with the new cabin design.

Joachim Hunold, chief executive officer, airberlin said: "The introduction of the new Sky Interior is part of many comfort initiatives we are introducing throughout the airberlin fleet. This shows that we are placing even greater focus on the needs of business travelers and are making airberlin flights even more attractive. The Boeing Sky Interior is also a taste of things to come for airberlin passengers as the design is based on the interior of the Boeing Dreamliner."

The sculpted sidewalls of the interior provide passengers with a feeling of spaciousness. New window reveals make the windows seem larger. Brighter and longer-lasting LED lighting can be programmed to provide a soft blue sky overhead or to create different effects during the flight. Larger stowage bins pivot down and out. Intuitive placement of switches and call buttons and improved sound quality are further features that enhance the passenger experience.
