Australian jetsetters flying with Malaysia Airlines can now experience a new level of luxury with the launch of its revamped Business Class set to delight local passengers as the national carrier continues to rebuild from the inside out.
The new Business Class seat, with a 43-inch seat pitch converting into a fully flat 76-inch bed, is one of the best received Business Class offerings in the industry.
It comes with 90 per cent more working space, extra stowage for personal items and the majority of seats have direct aisle access thanks to the 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 seat layout.
Each seat is equipped with a 16-inch touch screen in-flight entertainment system and every aspect of the Business Class cabin has been carefully designed with passenger comfort and needs in mind.
Paul Simmons, chief commercial officer at Malaysia Airlines, said the new seating is a reflection of the airline’s commitment to offering its customer base only the best to enhance their overall experience.
“The introduction of the A330 Business Class seat will make us more competitive against other full-service carriers and is part of our push to make Malaysia Airlines the preferred carrier to, from and around Malaysia,” Simmons said.
“This is the start of an exciting roll-out of new, innovative and personalised products and services that we can’t wait to share with our guests.”
Business Class passengers can also take advantage of Malaysia Airlines’ award winning satay stick appetizers served with delicious peanut sauce in flight or the ‘Chef-on-Call’ dining service, providing advance meal selection from 25 options consisting of Malaysian specialities, chef specials and healthy choice dishes, providing you book at least 24 hours ahead.
The new-look seats touched down in Sydney on March 23rd 2016 and other Australian destinations will follow suit between April to September.
The A330 also flies to Malaysia Airlines’ destinations in New Zealand, Japan, Korea, China, and India.
