KLM showcases new WBC cabin


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is currently showcasing its new World Business Class cabin interior at Sandton City shopping centre’s Centre Court, in Johannesburg (South Africa), until 24 August.

KLM teamed up with Dutch designer Hella Jongerius to introduce a brand-new atmosphere, furnishings and style in World Business Class.  

The guiding principle of the new design was to ensure passengers feel at home on board. That involved a transition from a business-like look to a greater sense of being at home.

The new cabin interior will feature on the Amsterdam-Johannesburg route in late 2015. The entire Boeing 777-200 fleet will be refurbished throughout 2015. 

In addition to new full-flat seats, the interior features new carpeting, panel decorations, curtains, lighting, blankets, cushions and upholstery.

The seat position in the cabin and the partition between television screens ensure greater privacy for passengers. There are also storage compartments in the seats beside the passengers and under the television screens.
