QANTAS Airways’ (Sydney) first upgraded international Airbus A330 cabin was introduced on January 16 on the Melbourne-Singapore route.
Passengers on flight QF 35 from Melbourne to Singapore were the first QANTAS customers to fly on the reconfigured international aircraft (see video below). It follows the introduction of the first domestic Airbus A330 last month, now operating on east-west services and key domestic routes.
The new A330 experience offers lie-flat Business Suites, designed in collaboration with Marc Newson, with a unique feature that allows customers to recline in their seat from take-off through to landing. A next-generation model of the award-winning Recaro seat has been introduced in Economy, and customers in all cabins will enjoy the latest inflight entertainment technology.
More than half of QANTAS’ 28 A330 aircraft are expected to be refurbished by the end of December 2015, with the project to be completed by the end of 2016.
Customers in Economy will enjoy QANTAS’ new inflight dining experience, launched on Singapore flights earlier this week, offering more choice, larger meals and improved service.
In other news, QANTAS has welcomed Oroton onboard as the latest designer brand to create the airline’s coveted Business amenity kit (above).
The limited edition Business Sleep Collection amenity kit features a signature Oroton styled bag paired with exclusive ASPAR products by Aurora Spa.
The unisex amenity kit has been designed to hold QANTAS’ signature Business pyjamas, eye mask, socks, toothbrush, toothpaste and earplugs comfortably inside.
QANTAS International Head of Customer Experience & Creative Development Kylie Morris said the limited edition Oroton amenity kit was timed to celebrate the inaugural flight of the upgraded international A330 from Singapore to Melbourne.
The QANTAS Business Sleep Collection will be offered to customers travelling in the Business cabin from today on select Qantas international flights from Asia operated by the refurbished A330 aircraft.
