Malaysia Airlines Launches A330 Business Class Seats
Sepang, 22 March 2016: Malaysia Airlines today unveiled its first A330-300 aircraft fitted with the new Business Class seats at its Engineering Complex in Sepang. The new seats will take off on its first flight, MH141 from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney on 23 March 2016.
The launch event was officiated by Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Paul Simmons, who was joined by the airline’s staff, invited guests as well as members of the media. All guests were given the opportunity to experience the fully revamped Business Class cabin.
The Business Class seat pitch, which measures at 44 inches with a width of 20 inches and length of 76 inches (fully flat), is one of the best received business class seats in the industry. The seats come with increased working space with 90% of all seats having direct aisle access due to the 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 seat layout, with extra stowage space for personal items.
Each seat is equipped with a 16-inch touch screen in-flight entertainment system. Every aspect of the new product has been carefully designed with the passenger’s comfort and needs in mind.
Speaking at the event, Paul said, “This marks the start of an exciting product roll-out for our Business Class customers to experience. The Business Class cabin refurbishment will be carried out in stages on all 15 of Malaysia Airlines’ A330 aircraft by September 2016.”
“With the launch of our new seats, we are confident that Malaysia Airlines will be the first choice for travel to, from and around Malaysia. We are also confident that these seats will further improve and strengthen our premium product and service offerings,” he added.
The new Business Class seats are available on Malaysia Airlines’ A330 flights between Kuala Lumpur and Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, China and India from March 2016 onwards.
The newly configurated A330 will have 27 all new Business Class seats and 263 Economy Class seats.
