KLM Royal Dutch Airline has announced the addition of a Boeing 787-9 to its fleet, due to arrive in October 2015.
Among the most important features of the Boeing 787-9 are the new World Business Class (WBC) seats, which recline completely flat and have direct access to the aisle, the Economy Class seats, which recline 40% further; a state-of-the-art In-flight Entertainment system and Wi-Fi for all passengers who want to be online during their flight.
The new model is quieter, and fuel efficient reducing 02 emissions by at least 20%.
The aircraft is part of KLM’s programme of fleet investment, which began with the introduction of the new World Business Class in the Boeing 747.
This was followed by entirely new World Business Class and Economy Class interiors in the Boeing 777-200 and the phased introduction of new Boeing 777-300s.
From December 2015, KLM will continue its fleet renewal with the deployment of the Embraer 175 and 190.
