Austrian finishes conversion of A320 family

Austrian Airlines has completed the conversion of its A320 aircraft, adding new interior furnishings. All its A320-family aircraft (21 in total) now feature the new fittings. By September 2011, Austrian will also refurbish its 11 Boeing 737 aircraft – bringing 32 medium-haul aircraft up to date in total. In the first half of 2012 it will refurbish the A320 aircraft that it incorporated into its fleet in 2011.

The core element of the new cabin is a completely redeveloped seat with a light construction and leather cover. Its magazine pocket has been moved upwards on the seatback, while the coat hook is on the outer side. The seat’s construction gives passengers up to 10cm (3.9in) more legroom, depending on the aircraft. The airline says the seat is also between 3-5kg lighter than its predecessor, enabling it to save a total of 14,304kg of weight every year. The new seat also takes up less space, meaning an average of almost five additional seats can be installed in each aircraft. The colour of the new design differs from Austrian’s previous image. The seats and carpeting are grey, with accents in a typically Austrian red.
