Bengaluru has become the first city in the country to welcome the airline’s sophisticated and newly branded business cabin known as Club Suite, which offers direct-aisle access, a door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Boasting 40 per cent more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, high speed WiFi, enviable 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens, high definition gate-to-gate programming, and PC / USB power; every aspect of British Airways’ new cabin has been designed for today’s customer.
Moran Birger, Head of Sales Asia Pacific and Middle East at British Airways, said: “India is incredibly important to British Airways and we have a long history of serving the market with increased flights out of Mumbai and our brand new A350 from Bengaluru, we are currently focusing on enhancing customer experience onboard our flights from India.
“As one of the busiest airports in India, Bengaluru is an important hub for the airline and we are delighted to welcome our new A350 aircraft featuring our new Club Suite business cabin, which is one of the most exciting developments in our current £6.5 billion investment programme. We have a very strong and well-established brand in India and will continue to invest here to make air travel a seamless experience for our customers.”
The A350 aircraft has been carefully designed to promote a feeling of well-being, space and calm due to its reduced noise levels, high ceilings and ambient lighting, which reflect the time of day and outside light. Customers will leave their flight feeling rested thanks to higher levels of humidity and refreshed air as the cabin pressure is equivalent to an altitude of just 6,000 feet. Inspired by birds, the A350 is the world’s most modern wide body aircraft. It is the most efficient large engine flying today with a take-off thrust of 97,000 lbs.
