Air France - Already close to 700,000 passengers in Premium Voyageur
Tuesday 31, May 2011
Since it was launched in November 2009, close to 700,000 passengers have travelled in the new Premium Voyageur cabin.
This new travel class has been available on an Air France Airbus A380 over the last few days. The Premium Voyageur cabin, situated between Business and Voyageur cabins on the upper deck, offers 40% additional space compared with Voyageur (Economy) class; a preserved personal space with a 48-cm wide fixed-shell seat which reclines to 123°.
Passengers travelling in Premium Voyageur benefit from faster and easier services at the airport with access to Business class check-in desks, priority baggage delivery and an additional baggage allowance to most destinations. A trip in the Premium Voyageur cabin enables customers to earn 25% more Miles compared with a ticket in Economy class.
Air France is the first European airline to offer reclining fixed-shell seats in an intermediate cabin.
In terms of comfort, customers benefit from Business class offers including the amenities kit, the feather pillow or the pure new wool blanket. The meal service is the same as in the Voyageur cabin.
Premium Voyageur is available this summer on the entire international long-haul network served by Boeing 777s and Airbus A340/A330s, i.e., 90% of destinations.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
