KLM Airline presented Indian travellers with a new concept of fully flat beds on daily flights from New Delhi to Amsterdam. All KLM international long-haul destination flights served by Boeing 747- 400 will offer its business class passengers the new fully flat beds. The new seats will offer more legroom and no middle seat.
Yeshwant Pawar, general manager, South Asia KLM said, “KLM continues to invest in customer comfort across the world as this has been our top most priority. The guiding principle to introduce fully flat beds is a step towards enhancing customer comfort and privacy as befits KLM. The new full-flat seat also plays an important role in helping to strengthen our position as a preferred airline in the Indian market.”
The new 180 degree horizontally reclining seats in the World Business Class are longer with 2.07 meters in length, wider with 63 inches in pitch. Every seat has an integrated 17 inch video monitor for in-flight entertainment. There is in-seat power and also storage compartments in the seat behind the passenger as well as under the television screen.
To mark the launch of the fully flat beds in the World Business Class, KLM hosted an evening on November 8, 2013 in Delhi. With an objective to share the insights on the USPs and features of this new product, KLM brought five electronic 3D pillars to demonstrate the product and its distinctiveness from Amsterdam among their trade partners.
