SWISS teases details of A350 cabin interior
Switzerland’s biggest airline, SWISS, has now finalized the specifications for its forthcoming fleet of A350-900 aircraft, the interiors of which have been designed in accordance with its own particular needs.
The new Airbus A350-900s, which are scheduled to enter service from 2025 onward and will replace SWISS’ four remaining four-engine Airbus A340-300s, will feature the new ‘SWISS Senses’ cabin concept, which will offer SWISS customers a totally new and more personalized air travel experience.
The new SWISS Airbus A350-900 will seat 242 passengers in total: three in First Class, 45 in Business Class, 38 in Premium Economy Class and 156 in Economy Class.
At 38 seats, the Airbus A350-900’s Premium Economy Class will be substantially larger than those on SWISS’s existing long-haul aircraft.
“Through their carefully-conceived spatial design, all our seating classes aboard our aircraft will offer our guests a totally new and unparallelled air travel experience from 2025 onwards,” said SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour in a September 11 press release. “With our new cabin concept, we will still remain the only major airline in the world to offer a First- Class cabin on all its long-haul aircraft. We will also be increasing the size of our Premium Economy Class, which has proved very popular. And in both these respects, we are further clearly positioning SWISS as Europe’s leading premium airline.”
