Air France to upgrade its Embraer 190 with brand new travel cabins

Air France

The entire cabin decor will be also given a makeover in the Air France colours, from the walls of the aircraft to the carpet on the floor.

Air France continues to upgrade its range of products and services on its short and medium-haul network. The company and its regional subsidiary are thus preparing to renew the cabins of all the Embraer 190s operated by HOP!

To design the aircraft’s future seats, Air France has teamed up with Expliseat, the French manufacturer of an innovative carbon fiber and titanium seat combining a lightweight and sustainable design with enhanced comfort, durability and functionality. Tailored to the airline’s needs, they will be manufactured and assembled in Angers, France.

The refurbishment of the Embraer 190s will start after summer at the HOP! maintenance site in Clermont-Ferrand. The first of these revamped aircraft will take to the skies in autumn 2024.

These new-generation seats will be consistent with the high standards of comfort offered on board the Airbus A220, the jewel in Air France’s short and medium-haul fleet. They will be unveiled exclusively from 28 to 30 May at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg (Germany), an event bringing together aviation professionals to discuss innovations in cabin interiors.
