Virgin Australia Airlines (Brisbane) has revealed a new design and interior refresh of the Boeing 777-300 ER fleet.
According to the airline, “the Boeing 777 re-design will bring a fresh and contemporary new look to the fleet, consistent with that across the Virgin Australia domestic network.”
The 777 cabin interior will undergo a complete re-design of seat fabrics, carpets and curtain dividers. Seats across Business, Premium Economy and Economy have been updated for even more comfort with extra padding, new fabrics and headrests throughout the aircraft.
Led by Virgin Australia’s Creative Director, Hans Hulsbosch, the new designs are inspired by the ceiling and flooring “leaf” designs in the Virgin Australia lounges, and have been created exclusively for the 777 fleet. The design and color palette creates a strong brand connection across the Virgin Australia journey.
The new features include:
- Newly designed custom fabric covers for Business, Premium Economy and Economy Seats
- Fabrics manufactured by world renowned fabric manufacturers Rohi, in Munich, Germany.
- All seat covers feature enhanced cushioning for extra comfort
- Newly designed curtain dividers
- New carpet throughout cabin
The first Boeing 777-300 with the cabin redesign entered revenue service on April 12, with the remainder of the fleet rolling out with the refresh throughout the rest of the year.
In other news, the airline revealed a series of major enhancements to its facilities at Sydney Airport’s Domestic terminal (T2) and Melbourne Airports’ Domestic Terminal 3.
The enhancements at Sydney Airport include a new state-of-the-art lounge and a significant upgrade to its dedicated pier within the terminal. The new architecturally designed lounge will stretch over two levels, doubling the existing size of the Sydney lounge and providing sweeping views of Botany Bay and beyond. Virgin Australia’s Pier A at Terminal 2 will be refurbished internally and expanded to accommodate larger aircraft.
The enhancements at Sydney and Melbourne domestic airports are expected to be completed by the end of this year.
