After months of nail-biting anticipation, Air Pacific (or should we say Fiji Airways) has finally released details of its new aircraft livery and revamped cabin product to be delivered on its new A330 aircraft. The new birds are expected to take to the skies next year.
Dave Pflieger, Air Pacific’s MD and CEO, today said:
“The unveiling of the new look and features of our soon-to-arrive A330’s is the latest milestone in a series of initiatives that are a part of the Air Pacific’s restructuring and rebranding. We couldn’t think of a better way to honour Fiji’s national day holiday than to share a first glimpse of the exciting things in store for Fiji and our passengers”.
So what should passengers expect on the new aircraft? Showers? Cocktail bars? Not quite – but the airline has certainly made a commendable effort to improve on its current offering – and from the looks of things they have delivered the goods.
The new A330’s are the first brand new aircraft that the airline has ever purchased. The seating was designed by Zodiac Aerospace/Weber and thankfully each passenger will have in-seat power. Passengers won’t only have to rely on their own devices as the airline will be installing Panasonic in-flight entertainment systems (which look fantastic in the pics).
The cabins and seating come in refreshing light-tan and brown colours which ties in perfectly with the airlines new logo. Business class looks like Singapore Airlines’s regional business class and Virgin Australia’s business class on it’s domestic A330’s – distinguishable by the funky looking ‘flaps’ by the headrest. Economy looks like every other economy product but the new entertainment screens look as large as any other market leading airline.
