KLM has revealed its first Airbus A330-200 with a fully renewed cabin interior, the renovated aircraft operated its first flight to Abu Dhabi.
In addition to a new design, all seats in the World Business Class have been converted to full-flat models which are more than two metres long at full stretch.
Previously, KLM updated the World Business Class cabins on-board its Boeing 747s, 777-200s and 777-300s. KLM’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliners were already equipped with the new-look World Business Class. The seats and interior were designed by KLM in collaboration with designer Hella Jongerius.
A new in-flight entertainment system has been installed in the business class with 18.5” HD-quality touchscreen display in 16.9 format and interactive entertainment menu in 12 languages, featuring more than 200 films and 3D flight tracking – it also includes films with audio description for blind and visually impaired passengers.
