KLM announces new Europe Business Class cabinKLM announces new Europe Business Class cabin
Dutch national airline KLM is set to upgrade its premium service with the new Europe Business Class cabin, reports Business Traveller.
The new premium cabin, which will be included in KLM's entire fleet of Boeing 737 jets, is expected to enter service on March 27 of this year. Passengers in the cabin will be given standard business class amenities like extra baggage allowances, faster handling on the ground and access to lounges. Additionally, KLM is expected to upgrade its meal service and introduce new tableware created by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders.
The main draw of the new cabin, however, is that KLM will leave the middle seat in each row empty, giving its passengers more room to stretch out and relax and guaranteeing that everyone has either a window or an aisle seat.
"Extensive research among KLM business class passengers revealed a clear need for a better, more comfortable service to enable passengers to work on board or relax," Erik Varwijk, executive vice president for KLM's commercial division told the source. "We are delighted to meet customers’ needs by offering them a vastly improved, new and comfortable product."
