Canadian airline Westjet rolls out its first-ever business-class seat, debuting on the airline’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in early 2019.
The plane will have 16 pod-style business-class seats laid out in a 1-2-1 format with adjustable screens separating the two middle seats. All will be fully lie-flat and will have in-seat power with an 18-inch touchscreen.
The airline will also adopt a dine-on-demand model for its meal service. Passengers will be offered a turndown service if they need help setting up their beds.
The new plane will also have a premium-economy cabin with seats that have 38 inches of pitch, in-seat power and 13-inch touchscreens — plus self-serve social access areas. The third cabin, economy, will have 35-inch seats with 12-inch seat back monitors.
Westjet also introduces a new livery design with a revamped font and more modern interpretation of its logo.
“The introduction of Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner, a state-of-the-art aircraft, is the dawn of a new era for Westjet and the next step in our transformation to a global network airline,” said Ed Sims, president and CEO, Westjet.
“The updated livery is modern and dynamic while the interior is world-class, distinctly Canadian and uniquely Westjet. Both reflect Westjet’s transition from a regional airline in 1996 to a new era of connecting Canada with the world and bringing the world to Canada.”
