Air Canada has revealed its new international cabin design and seating that will be featured on its Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet. Beginning in July 2014, the first Air Canada route to be operated with 787 Dreamliner aircraft featuring the new cabin interior and amenities will be the carrier's Toronto-Tel Aviv route.

The airline will take delivery of the first of 37 Boeing 787 aircraft in the spring of 2014 and will provide three cabins of service on board. There's a brand new contemporary decor and comfortable ergonomic seating that features 180-degree lie-flat seats in its International Business Class cabin.

The in-flight entertainment on enhanced definition seat-back touch screens will be available for all customers along with power outlets and USB ports.

Contemporary, sophisticated
The Air Canada cabin design is contemporary, sophisticated in a palette of slate grey and neutral tones with accents of Canadian red.
The interior decor, cabin architecture and seating in all three cabins - International Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy - have been designed to provide customers with an exceptional travel experience.

Highlights of Air Canada's new International Business Class cabin on the 787 Dreamliner include 20 lie-flat Executive Pods with an adjustable pneumatic cushion system that can be extended into a fully flat sleeping position 80 inches in length. New features that enhance the airline's award-winning International Business cabin include:

• An adjustable pneumatic cushion headrest offers a massage feature, unique for an airline in business class.

• The personal entertainment screen with touch handset, at 18 inches, is the largest offered by a North American airline in business class. Universal power and USB outlets are available at each seat.

• Air Canada is also debuting a new espresso and cappuccino service for International Business Class customers featuring Lavazza coffee freshly brewed onboard.

• A 1-2-1 configuration guarantees direct aisle access with window views featuring the largest windows of any aircraft flying today.

"We are very excited to introduce completely re-designed seating and cabin amenities that will offer Air Canada customers the very best in comfort and contemporary design," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

"With the arrival next spring of our first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Air Canada continues to renew its international widebody fleet with the next generation of modern and fuel efficient aircraft. As North America's Best Airline, we look forward to taking delivery of our first 787 Dreamliner and continuing to raise the bar in customer comfort."
