KLM has unveiled its latest innovation for business travellers: the all-new World Business Class seats.
These cutting-edge seats have been meticulously designed to provide unparalleled comfort and privacy, catering to the discerning needs of modern business travellers.
Through extensive customer research and collaboration with renowned seat manufacturer Jamco, KLM has introduced a range of remarkable features in its new World Business Class seats.
One of the standout features is the inclusion of a sliding door, which not only enhances privacy but also ensures a more serene and undisturbed environment for passengers.
With a simple slide, the seat can be closed off, creating a secluded space for working, relaxing, or enjoying uninterrupted sleep.
KLM’s commitment to sustainability is evident in the design of these new seats.
Leveraging various innovative techniques, the seats and their fittings are impressively 10-15% lighter than other business class seats in the market, aligning with KLM’s sustainability objectives. This lighter weight not only contributes to reducing the airline’s environmental footprint but also enhances fuel efficiency, offering a ‘greener’ travel experience.
In addition to the sliding door feature, the new World Business Class seats offer an array of personalisation options and user-friendly functionalities.
Passengers can enjoy direct aisle access from every seat, ensuring seamless movement throughout the cabin.
The seats come with an adjustable lower-back support for optimal comfort and even provide a relaxing setting with a subtle back-massage feature.
For those seeking ultimate rest, the seat reclines fully flat, transforming into a luxurious 198cm-long bed.
Recognising the importance of staying connected during travel, KLM has integrated multiple accessible charging sockets into the seats, accompanied by a wireless charging option.
Furthermore, passengers can conveniently store their belongings in a lockable compartment, which includes a built-in mirror for added convenience.
The seats are also equipped with a recessed bottle holder, ensuring that passengers can securely place their water bottles on the tabletop even during turbulence.
The introduction of these exceptional World Business Class seats marks a significant milestone for KLM.
The airline’s Boeing 777-300 and 200 fleet will be gradually fitted with these innovative seats, providing an elevated travel experience to its business class passengers.
Boet Kreiken, EVP Customer Experience said,
Based on extensive customer and competitor research, we improved our World Business Class seats to ensure that customers have more privacy and comfort during their flight.
The new seats are better in terms of design, technology and sustainability features.
KLM meets a wide array of its passengers’ wishes with the new seats in World Business Class, Premium Comfort, Economy Comfort and Economy Class.
We are delighted to offer these new products and related services to our customers worldwide.
Simultaneously, KLM will introduce the latest Premium Comfort cabin, completing the full revamp within the coming year.
While KLM’s World Business Class undergoes a remarkable transformation, passengers can still enjoy the exceptional services that have made the airline renowned.
The renowned catering concept and SkyPriority services will remain unchanged, ensuring a seamless and luxurious journey for business travelers.
Business travellers can look forward to embarking on a new era of luxury and tranquility with the introduction of KLM’s impressive World Business Class seats.
