The first SWISS Airbus A340 with a totally refurbished interior in all three seating cabins has entered into commercial service.
The aircraft is the first of SWISS’s five Airbus A340s to be given a nose-to-tail cabin refurbishment. The aircraft are undergoing the work one after the other; and under current planning, all five A340s should be refurbished by summer of this year.
The refurbishment programme entails developing and installing new First, Business and Economy Class seats, providing a new in-flight entertainment system that also offers internet connectivity, installing new galleys and comprehensively modernising the entire interior (including adopting a new lighting concept) in all three seating cabins. The refurbishment delivers further passenger benefits, too, and raises the in-flight comfort aboard SWISS’s Airbus A340s to that of its Boeing 777s.
