Air France Premium Voyageur: even more destinations
Wednesday 26, May 2010
Since Tuesday 24 May, Air France's first Airbus A330 equipped with the Premium Voyageur cabin flies to New York's Newark airport.
The Premium Voyageur cabin is the new intermediate cabin class that Air France launched in October 2009. It is aimed at Business travellers who currently travel in the economy cabin, as well as leisure travellers looking for additional comfort at a lower fare than in Business class. 37 aircraft are already equipped and the entire long-haul fleet (except for the A380) will be equipped by the end of 2010 (76 aircraft). The A380s will be equipped with the Premium Voyageur cabin in summer 2011.
With Premium Voyageur, Air France is completing its offer on its long-haul network and is adapting its range of products to its customers' new needs and expectations. For a very competitive fare, customers can enjoy a private cabin, with 40% additional space and a fixed-shell 48 cm-wide seat which reclines to 123°.
Customer satisfaction with the new product is high as they appreciate its comfort and excellent value for money. 70% of them said they would recommend it to their friends.
The Premium Voyageur cabin is currently available on flights to Abidjan, Beirut, Dakar, Dubai, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong, Washington, Houston, Seoul, New York-JFK, Osaka, Luanda, Los Angeles, Libreville, Lagos, Mexico City, Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Santiago de Chile, Singapore and Montreal.
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.
