Irish flag-carrier Aer Lingus will launch its new A330 Business Class cabin, complete with lie flat seats, in March 2015.

Aer Lingus has released a preview of what transatlantic passengers can expect in its all-new Business Class cabin on its A330s from March 2015.

Among the key features are seats from Thompson Aero Seating, which convert into two-metre-long lie flat beds and include a massage function, 16-inch in-flight entertainment (IFE) monitors, and personal charging points and USB plugs for every passenger.

Passengers travelling with their electronic device will also be able to store their laptops in a dedicated personal stowage area, while a seatback mini tablet holder will provide additional storage space. Complimentary onboard Wi-Fi will also be offered in the Business Class cabin.

The on-demand food and beverage service will offer a “fusion of the best of traditional and modern Irish” cuisine, and the specially selected wines will help to create a “truly top restaurant experience” onboard.

Aer Lingus will take delivery of a total of 189 Thompson ‘Vantage’ seats for seven of its A330s towards the end of this year, before launching the new premium product in March 2015.
