KLM launches new seats and cabins on World Business Class

KLM ROYAL DUTCH AIRLINES has debuted its new World Business Class (WBC) seats that offer full-flat seats, extra storage compartments and a partition between television screens for added privacy.

Additionally, the WBC will see a refurbished cabin atmosphere that features new carpeting, panel decoration, curtains, lighting, blankets and cushions.

Moving away from conventional business travel style, the new cabins will feature a warm color palette and will see the use of more sustainable material.

The new seats will be retrofitted into all of KLM’s B747 and B777-200 fleets. By year end, the new fittings will also feature on all of its B777-300s.

WBC is the airline’s long-haul business class option where seats are arranged in a pod-style layout and passengers are handed amenity kits by Dutch designer Jan Taminiau.

KLM services passengers from Europe to Asian business hubs including China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, China and Hong Kong.
