Air France 60th B777 for Caribbean-Indian Ocean Routes

Air France has just taken delivery of its 60th passenger Boeing 777, to be used on its Caribbean-Indian Ocean network. The new 468-seat Boeing 777-300ER is equipped with 14 ‘full sleep’ Business Class seats, which are longer and wider.

The architecture, completely redesigned to provide more comfort, makes it one of the most spacious and most comfortable seat beds on the market. The new Business Class seats will equip all the Boeing 777 operating routes to Fort de France, Pointe à Pitre and Saint-Denis de la Réunion as from July 2012.

The Alizé cabin, with 32 seats, offers all the comforts of a private space, thanks to its new fixed-shell seat offering 40% more space than in the Voyageur (Economy) cabin. Already available on the Airbus A340 to Cayenne, these new seats will now equip the Boeing 777-300ER between Paris and Fort de France, Pointe à Pitre and Reunion Island.

This Boeing 777-300ER also has 422 seats in the Voyageur (Economy) cabin, offering a high level of comfort.

The aircraft is extremely efficient in terms of fuel consumption, thus limiting the environmental impact of each flight. Committed to sustainable development, Air France operates a young fleet, generating less CO2 and which is more environmentally friendly.

In April and May 2012, Air France will be receiving two more Boeing 777-300ER.

“On its flights to and from the French Overseas Departments, Air France aims to offer the best in terms of frequencies, innovation, comfort and services,” said Alain Malka, EVP Caribbean-Indian Ocean at Air France. “This process of continuous improvement will be enhanced in a few days’ time by these new B777 aircraft.”
