Air Canada Announces New Cabin Enhancements in Business and Coach
Air Canada announced multiple changes to its fleet of long-haul aircraft.
The Montreal-based carrier said it will expand its International Business Class product to all Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, seven more than originally planned.
Air Canada said it also plans to add a premium economy section to its fleet of eight Airbus A330-300 jets. Once these cabins have been updated, all of the airline’s 777s and A330s will have the same interior, similar to that found in the airline’s new fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The business-class cabin will have fully lie-flat seats that the airline says feature improved ergonomic cushions. Seats will also have 18” entertainment screens and video-touch screen handsets, as well as power outlets and USB ports. Air Canada said that the screens will be the largest offered by a North American airline.
The premium-economy cabin will have wider seats that offer more legroom and greater recline. Depending on the aircraft, passengers will have access to either a 9” or 11” touchscreen for in-flight entertainment as well as an individual power outlet and USB port.
Air Canada’s updated economy class cabin will feature slimline seats and 9” individual personal entertainment screens in addition to power outlets and USB ports.
