New Caledonia's Aircalin is expected to reveal all-new business class seats for its Airbus A330neo jets this week, ahead of the aircraft's delivery in the coming months.
The A330neo is an updated version of the popular A330 series, offering greater efficiency for airlines but also improved customer for passengers, including the AirSpace cabin concept featuring larger overhead luggage bins, LED lighting schemes and a "welcome area" by the doors.
Aircalin's A330neos will also see the debut of a new business class to replace the current 2-2-2 pods of its ageing A330s (shown below).
The airline is keeping its powder dry on exactly what the new seats will be, although we know there will be 26 of them (close to the 24-seat count of its standard A330s).
Aircalin has signed up for two A330neos to replace the A330s now flying into Asia, while two factory-fresh Airbus A320neo single-aisle jets due in 2020 will likewise see the airline's pair of A320 jets which service Australia and New Zealand put out to pasture.
