Air China recently launched its first A330-300 aircraft equipped with super economy class. This new cabin class will bring more legroom as well as more choices in interactive onboard audio and video entertainment. The first A330-300 aircrafts with super economy class will be used on domestic commercial routes, including Beijing-Shanghai and Beijing-Guangzhou.
As first and business class cabin services are increasingly improved, the super economy class has emerged silently in the global aviation industry. It is based on a higher economy class standard, with seats more than 10 centimeters wider than those of traditional economy class. Air China¡¯s super economy class also features independent personal entertainment systems. It is the first authentic super economy cabin to be used on domestic routes.
Air China plans to introduce 23 A330-300 aircraft with super economy cabins. With a total of 311 seats, this aircraft has both first class and economy class cabins. Located in the first three rows of the economy class cabin, the 20 super economy class seats feature a seat pitch of 92 centimeters, which is similar to that of first class in a traditional narrow body aircraft.
¡°Air China initiated super economy class in its domestic aircraft to provide more comfort and convenience to passengers. In the next few years, as we gradually establish the A330-300 fleet, Air China will further improve the products and services of super economy class to bring a unique and wonderful flight experience to passengers,¡± said Mr. Zhou Enyong, General Manager of Air China¡¯s Marketing Department.
