AIR France inaugurated its new La Première cabin on board flight AF254 to its two key Asian markets of Singapore and Jakarta, departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle on Monday.
From February, the new Air France cabins will be available on board all daily flights to Singapore and Jakarta, an initiative to “reaffirm the importance of South-east Asia, and to attract and retain premium customers”, said Frédéric Gagey, chairman and CEO, Air France.
Each suite in the cabin offers passengers privacy with full-length curtains and a screen, as well as seats that can be converted into a fully-flat bed, among other things.
Patrick Roux, Air France KLM (AFKL) senior vice president, Asia-Pacific, highlighted Singapore and Jakarta as two prominent hubs in South-east Asia. “We are looking to develop connectivity in the region and perhaps in the future we can look at other newer destinations, but these are the two for now.”
