- Personal Adjustment Options: Passengers can enjoy greater customization and ease of use with various adjustment options, including an adjustable lower-back support and a relaxed setting with a gentle back-massage feature.
- Fully Flat Bed Configuration: The seats can be reclined fully flat, forming a comfortable 198cm-long bed, allowing travelers to enjoy a restful sleep during long-haul journeys.

Focus on Sustainability and Passenger Feedback
KLM’s commitment to sustainability is exemplified through the new World Business Class seats. These seats and their fittings are 10-15% lighter than comparable business-class seats in the market. Subsequently, aligning with KLM’s environmental objectives.
Boet Kreiken, EVP of Customer Experience at KLM, highlighted the company’s dedication to meeting passengers’ needs.
He stated, “We improved our World Business Class seats to ensure that customers have more privacy and comfort during their flight. The new seats are better in terms of design, technology, and sustainability features.”
Collaboration with Jamco for Enhanced Design
To bring the new World Business Class seats to life, KLM partnered with Jamco and selected their Venture seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Further providing all WBC passengers direct aisle access.
This design has already been installed on KLM’s Boeing 787 fleet but was further refined based on customer feedback. The collaboration resulted in a lighter seat design without compromising on quality, aligning with KLM’s sustainability objectives.
KLM plans to install the new World Business Class seats on its entire Boeing 777-300 and 200 fleet. Simultaneously, the fleet will be equipped with the latest Premium Comfort cabin, ensuring a consistent and elevated experience across all classes.
The full revamp is scheduled for completion within the coming year. Further, allowing KLM passengers to enjoy enhanced features and services on their journeys worldwide.
