Nouveaux sièges classe Affaires d'Air France par Safran Seats

The first floor of the Eiffel Tower was the location chosen by Air France for its May 10 unveiling of the new version of the Cirrus seat to replace the Boeing 777-300's long-haul Business class seats. Continuing its strategy of moving upmarket, and seeking to offer the highest levels of comfort to its passengers, Air France selected Safran to manufacture these "Made in France" seats. Safran Seats is proud to be contributing to the airline's customer experience, with a high-end seat designed and assembled at the Issoudun site.

CONFORT AND DESIGN

The flagship innovation? A sliding door accompanies the moving panel, providing complete isolation for the passenger. For this new Cirrus, Air France has also selected wider, anti-glare Safran 4K screens with a higher optical resolution. Air France and Safran have also worked to redesign the cabin, incorporating a backlit winged seahorse that embodies the company's brand image and rich history.

This seat continues to offer passengers an experience based on the "3F concept":
- "Full Flat": the seat converts into a genuine flat bed nearly 2 meters long;
- "Full Access": all passengers have access to the aisle;
- "Full Privacy": for optimal privacy.
