AirCalin to reveal new business class for Airbus A330neo jets

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.

    Thanks David
    In the absence of other details is it known whether they will be full-flats? There's a dearth of these on south Pacific island airline services.

    If I had any more info, such as lie-flat vs recliner, that would have been in the article. We'll share more once Aircalin reveals the seats to the media.

    The 330 is also used on the NOU-PPT weekly flight and some NOU-SYD flights.
