KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
Great news for our passengers: we have started with the complete renewal of the cabins of our 14 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, for both Business Class and Economy Class! 💺🛫
The new ergonomically designed seats for Business Class and Economy Class offer more comfort and extra legroom. The upholstery is made of mostly recycled leather. The seats are 20% lighter on average, reducing the total cabin weight by 700 kg. This saves 58 tonnes of fuel and 184 tonnes of CO2 emissions per aircraft per year. For all 14 aircraft combined, this represents annual fuel savings of 812 tonnes and a reduction of 2,576 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
All refurbished Boeing 737-800s are equipped with Wi-Fi. To use the service passengers can purchase vouchers on KLM's free in-flight portal. Passengers always get 30 minutes of free messaging.
The first refurbished aircraft has already gone into service. In March 2022, the interior of the last in this series of 737-800s will be completely transformed. We hope you'll like it!
