SriLankan's new Business Class: Flatbed Seating

Mittwoch, 13. Oktober 2010

SriLankan Airlines will soon equip its long-haul fleet with Flatbed Seating and the latest Audio-Video-On-Demand (AVOD) Entertainment System, providing Business Class passengers on long-haul flights with the ultimate luxuries in air travel.

Captain Milinda Ratnayake, SriLankan’s Head of Service Delivery, said: “SriLankan will be one of the few airlines in the world to offer Flatbed Seats in Business Class on flights to Europe and other long-haul destinations. This further illustrates our statement that SriLankan’s Business Class is superior to others.”

Two of the airline’s existing fleet of four-engined Airbus A340 aircraft and four of its twin-engined A330 aircraft will be fitted with Flatbed Seating from Aviointeriors of Italy, commencing next May. The cabin conversion will be carried out at SriLankan’s engineering facilities at Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport, and would be completed by September.


Flatbed Seating is so named since the seat can be adjusted by its occupant to become completely flat and horizontal to the floor, providing a comfortable bed to sleep on while in flight. SriLankan’s latest aircraft – an A330 which arrived last July – already has Lie-Flat Seating in Business Class, which is almost to the standard of the Flatbeds.
