British Airways is making your next short-haul flight more comfortable and productive with their new cabin interiors.

British Airways has invested £7 billion to improve its business offerings, and a significant part of that investment is going towards revamping the interiors of its short-haul fleet. A focus on modern design, coupled with comfort-enhancing features, promises to make flying a breeze.

Designed for Discerning Business Travelers

The new cabins boast a modern yet classic design, featuring input from British suppliers. This means you can expect a comfortable and stylish environment that reflects British heritage.

But it’s not just about aesthetics. British Airways understands the needs of the business traveller. Here are some of the features you can expect to enjoy:

  • Enhanced Comfort: New ergonomically designed seats will provide superior comfort and ample legroom, ensuring you arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your business meetings.
  • Increased Productivity: Stay connected and productive throughout your flight with features like improved in-flight Wi-Fi, ample workspace, and more accessible USB-A and USB-C ports with one of each for every passenger.
  • Greater Privacy: The new cabin layout is designed to provide greater privacy for business travellers. This means that you can work or relax without being disturbed by other passengers.
  • Bigger Overhead Bins: British Airways is also introducing bigger overhead bins, capable of holding eight 61cm x 40cm x 25cm size bags, to its new short-haul cabins. This means more space for you to stow your carry-on luggage, eliminating the need to check a bag and wait at baggage claim upon arrival.

When Can We Expect to See the New Cabins?

British Airways plans to introduce the upgrades on all future Airbus A320neo deliveries. This means that you can expect to see the new cabins on an increasing number of British Airways short-haul flights in the coming months and years.
