Air Astana is introducing a new ‘economy sleeper’ class, which allows passengers to stretch out across a row of three seats.
To be rolled out on some of the Kazakh national carrier’s Boeing 757 aircraft, the new economy sleeper cabin is completely separate from the economy and business class cabins. It will convert up to 12 seats per flight into new ‘flat beds’, allowing passengers to put their feet up on long-haul flights.
A mattress, pillow and duvet will then be added to create the sleeper seats, and passengers will also be offered priority check-in and boarding, extra baggage allowance, lounge access, an amenity kit and in-flight entertainment system.
“As part of the constant process of product and service innovation, Air Astana is delighted to introduce the new economy class sleeper product, which provides many of the comforts and amenities of business class, but is attractively priced at the equivalent full economy class fare,” said Richard Ledger, Air Astana’s vice president of worldwide sales.
