Travellers are in for a treat as KLM Royal Dutch Airlines said that from March 27, 2016, it will operate its B777-200 aircraft on the Lagos – Amsterdam route.
The aircraft features the New World Business Class (WBC) cabin which was designed by leading Dutch designer Hella Jongerius.
KLM created an entirely new Business Class look & feel while uniting international allure with top Dutch design to emphasise a sense of pride in its Dutch heritage.
In addition to designing the interior, Hella Jongerius also shaped the full-flat seats.
Customer comfort and safety always form the premise, harmonising well with KLM’s brand values. This also fits into the broader context of other successful KLM initiatives in WBC with top Dutch chefs and fashion designers.
Speaking on the development, Jean-Raoul Tauzin, General Manager KLM Nigeria & Ghana, said: “ By revamping our World Business Class cabin we make our Business Class passengers feel at home on board. KLM strives constantly to safeguard individual comfort in amiable settings using innovations while putting emphasis on the best the Netherlands has to offer”
The new cabin is fitted with the new full-flat bed which guarantees optimum comfort.
The positioning of the new business class seats and other various smart design elements ensures privacy while sleeping or working.
