By 2025, the company will welcome a total of 28 Airbus A350-900s into its fleet.
Air France’s Airbus A350 will make its first commercial flight on October 7. It will be gradually deployed to 6 destinations in 2020.
On board the Air France Airbus A350, customers enjoy –
– a more spacious cabin in Business, Premium Economy and Economy class,
– windows that are 30% larger,
– a different air pressure system providing a more comfortable cabin atmosphere with regularly renewed cabin air,
– lighting adapted to the different flight phases.
The Airbus A350 cabin is also one of the quietest on latest-generation twin-aisle aircraft.
In Business, the seat turns into a real 2 metre-long lie-flat bed, guaranteeing you restful sleep. The new 18.5-inch HD touchscreen gives you access to more than 1,400 hours of entertainment including movies, music, podcasts and more. Alone or with a travel companion, the new configuration of this chic and elegant cabin adapts to how passengers wish to travel. They can choose between a shared travel experience or optimum privacy thanks to a removable partition wall.
In Premium Economy, the brand new “Recliner” seat is 48cm wide and reclines to 124°. Customers enjoy a 96cm seat pitch to stretch out their legs and a 13.3-inch HD touchscreen. For optimum relaxation, a pillow and a duvet are available for passengers.
