British Airways has deployed its A350 aircraft with Club Suite — the carrier’s new business class seat on the Bengaluru- London Heathrow (Terminal 5) sector.
With this, Bengaluru has become the fourth destination on the airline’s worldwide network and the first city in India to welcome the latest business cabin.
The Club Suite, which comes in the configuration of 1-2-1, offers direct-aisle access, a door for greater privacy and relatively spacious flat-bed seats. Additionally, it has 40 per cent more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, high speed wifi, 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens, and PC /USB power.
Known as the “Hushliner”, the A350 is more environmentally friendly than its predecessors and is the quietest twin-aisle aircraft. With lower noise and CO2 emissions, the aircraft’s environment benefits include 40 per cent noise footprint reduction and 25 per cent reduction in fuel burn.
Along with the new 56-seat Club World cabin, the three-cabin A350 features the latest World Traveller Plus (premium economy) cabin, new amenity kits and an enhanced service alongside an elevated dining experience. The World Traveller (economy) cabin offers 219 seats.
Commenting on this news, Moran Birger, head of sales, Asia Pacific and Middle East at British Airways, said, “India is incredibly important to British Airways and we have a long history of serving the market with increased flights out of Mumbai. With our brand new A350 from Bengaluru, we are currently focusing on enhancing customer experience onboard our flights from India.”
