Cabins launched to attract Singapore, Jakarta markets
Air France has inaugurated its new La Première cabin on board flight AF254 to its two key Asian markets of Singapore and Jakarta, departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
From February the new cabins will be available on all daily flights to the two Asian destinations, an initiative to “reaffirm the importance of South-East Asia and to attract and retain premium customers,” says Frédéric Gagey, the airline’s chairman and CEO.
Each suite in the cabin offers privacy with thick full-length curtains held with leather tiebacks and a screen as well as seats that can be converted into a fully-flat bed.
Each passenger has a personal 61-centimetre HD touchscreen, one of the biggest ever seen up in the air, “offering a totally new intuitive navigation experience on an exclusive graphic interface, inspired by the iPad and available in twelve languages”.
Patrick Roux, Air France KLM’s senior vice president for the Asia-Pacific region, highlighted Singapore and Jakarta as two prominent hubs in South-east Asia. “We are looking to develop connectivity in the region and perhaps in the future we can look at other newer destinations, but these are the two for now.”
