The airline will take delivery of 18 Airbus A350s, with four of the new aircraft joining the fleet before the end of the year.
Carolina Martinoli, director of brand and customer experience, BA, said, “We are delighted to welcome the first of our Airbus A350s to the fleet. This aircraft marks a significant and exciting milestone in our GBP6,5 billion investment programme and is even more special as it comes with our new Club Suite. The Airbus A350 is a fantastic aircraft and an excellent showpiece for British engineering. Our customers are going to love the space, light and comfort on board.”
The newly-branded Club Suite offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a one-two-one configuration.
Boasting 40 percent more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, WiFi, enviable 18,5-inch inflight entertainment screens, high definition gate-to-gate programming, and PC / USB power; every aspect of British Airways' Club Suite has been designed for today's customer.
