Virgin Australia announces revolutionary Business Class suite

We’re pleased to announce the next evolution in the premium Virgin Australia flight experience, by unveiling a major redesign of our Business Class and Premium Economy cabins on board our Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft.

This redesign will offer revolutionary suite-style seating in Business Class, and an extensive upgrade of the Business Class and Premium Economy cabins, including more spacious seating configurations and new bars on the Boeing 777 aircraft.

The innovative 1-2-1 seat configuration will guarantee passengers a window or aisle seat and maximum privacy to work, rest and unwind. The suite includes a unique tablet holder, a 16 to 18 inch touch screen for entertainment, multiple lighting settings and plenty of storage. The seat also offers the ultimate comfort with new soft furnishings, a number of adjustable positions to suit the differing needs of customers and an adjustable arm rest to increase the seat width when sleeping.

The suites will roll out to our Airbus A330 fleet in early 2015 with the first aircraft expected to be in service by March and the complete refit of the fleet to be finalised by August. The roll out of the new Business Class product to the Boeing 777 fleet will commence from November 2015 and be complete by early 2016. The upgrade will also include the introduction of a redesigned Business Class bar and changes to the Premium Economy cabin. A reduction in the number of seats will make Virgin Australia’s International Premium Economy a more exclusive experience, and give passengers three inches more legroom.
