Air France launches new business-class cabin

Air France has put to service a new-version Boeing 777-300ER equipped with more business-class cabin and new in-flight products, including an entertainment system for its non-stop flights between Paris and HCM City.

The latest version of the Boeing 777-300ER was configured with 42 Business seats, 24 Premium Voyageur seats and 317 Voyageur seats. The new Premium Voyageur is positioned between the business and economy classes.

In addition to the in-flight entertainment system developed exclusively for Air France, the European carrier said there were new bar areas in each cabin of the Boeing 777-300ER that flies between the two cities thrice a week.

“With the deployment of this new aircraft offering a further improved in-flight product, Air France aims to bolster its position in Vietnam,” Thierry Beragnes, country manager Vietnam at Air France KLM, said in a statement.

“This is a further step forward in our development strategy, following the code-share agreement signed with Vietnam Airlines last July and the launch of non-stop services in November,” he added.

In the winter schedule, Air France has five weekly non-stop flights between HCM City and Paris, with three flights operated by the Boeing 777-300ER and two flights by Vietnam Airlines. The Boeing aircraft arrives at Tan Son Nhat International Airport at 4:55 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Air France also offers its customers non-stop flights operated by Vietnam Airlines between Hanoi and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris five times weekly under the terms of a code-share agreement signed by the two sides.

The five flights depart Hanoi at 11:55 p.m. and arrive in Paris at 7 a.m. the next days on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Vietnam Airlines plane leaves Paris at 1:10 p.m. and lands on Noi Bai International Airport at 6:20 a.m. the next days on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
