Exceptional new cabins take off to South East Asia

A region experiencing an economic boom, Air France-KLM intends to offer its best products and services to its customers in South East Asia.

As from February 2015 and throughout the winter season, the new Air France cabins will be available on board all flights to Singapore and Jakarta, for optimal travel comfort. Since September 2014, customers have already been enjoying these exceptional new cabins on certain flights to these two cities.

On board the Boeing 777-300 equipped with these cabins, customers can enjoy a real designer suite in the La Première cabin. Each one provides optimum privacy and enables passengers to isolate themselves partially or totally, in absolute comfort. Well-being, tranquillity and serenity go hand in hand, for exceptional travel comfort.

Travelers can also enjoy the new Business cabin, a real cocoon in the sky. They also benefit from the new Economy cabin, offering optimal comfort for all, as well as Premium Economy, with 40% more space.

Furthermore, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ new World Business Class is available this winter to Bangkok for optimum travel comfort.

New features between Europe and south East Asia

Air France-KLM, European leader in South East Asia*, operates flights to eight destinations in this region on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol, with over 90 weekly flights, including some with its partners Vietnam Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, China Airlines and Garuda Indonesia.

In winter 2015, Air France is maintaining its daily service to Jakarta (Indonesia) launched in summer 2014, as a continuation of the flight to Singapore. Furthermore, in order to take advantage of the seasonality of certain destinations, Air France is strengthening its offer during the peak winter season, from mid-December to mid-March, with a daily flight to Bangkok (Thailand) and a fourth frequency to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).

The Air France-KLM Group is also developing its cooperation with its Asian partners to offer customers more connecting opportunities and destinations in South East Asia. As from 19 January 2015, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will offer new flight frequencies on a codeshare basis with Garuda Indonesia from Amsterdam to Jakarta, strengthening its cooperation with the Indonesian airline. In July 2014, Air France also signed a code-share agreement with Garuda Indonesia, enabling its customers to continue their trip to Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali) on arrival in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur thanks to a wider range of flight schedules. This agreement also enables them to fly to Surabaya-Juanda international, airport (East Java) from Singapore.
