Air France Introduces New Seats for More Comfortable Travel

Premium Voyageur seats from Air France

Always staying on the cutting-edge of the airline industry, Air France recently introduced new private cabins on their long-haul flights, which make flights more bearable. The Premium Voyageur section, located between the business and economy cabins, offers 40 percent more space than economy class and boasts that hard-to-find personal space ensured by a fixed-shell seat. These unique cabins have been gradually phased in on Air France’s entire international long-haul network on Boeing 777s, Airbus A340s and A330s. This ticket class also offers priority check-in desks, increased baggage weight allowance, and priority boarding and baggage delivery.

In addition, the launch of Premium Voyageur has been an opportunity for Air France to change its cabin names to La Première (first class), Affaires (business class), Premium Voyageur and Voyageur (economy).
