Behind the scenes of Air New Zealand's seat development

14 Dec 2010 by BusinessTraveller

Business Traveller has been granted access to Hangar 9, Air New Zealand's top secret facility for the development of its new economy and premium economy seating.

Located in downtown Auckland, the development centre was used by ANZ's teams of engineers and designers to create the innovative new seating products, interiors and staff uniforms which will debut on the carrier's B777-300ERs from early next year.

Below are a few photos taken at Hangar 9 - for dozens more visit the Business Traveller Facebook page at
