flydubai has added products to its Business Class cabin providing passengers with reclining seats and a new in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.
Passengers on flight FZ729 to Kiev’s Boryspil Airport, Ukraine, were the first to experience the carrier’s new Business Class cabin, comprising of 12 reclining seats and a seat pitch of 42 inches. The new IFE system includes a high definition touchscreen of 12.1 inches with a choice of 1,300 hours of entertainment.
flydubai received its first Business Class fitted aircraft in August. The airline has used this aircraft to train its Business Class cabin crew members as well as conduct focus groups with frequent flyers to get feedback and enhance the offering.
“We have conducted extensive focus groups with our frequent flyers, and their feedback has been instrumental in making the Business Class experience the best that it can be,” commented Ghaith Al Ghaith, flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer. “Passengers who got to be the first to sample the new service were very pleased with the spacious new cabin configuration, the variety of the menu and the high quality in-flight entertainment.”
flydubai will gradually expand its Business Class services across its network of more than 65 destinations in 34 countries. The airline will receive three new aircraft fitted with Business Class by the end of the year, along with retrofitting nine aircraft from its existing fleet of 31 aircraft.
