Air France Unveils New Embraer 190 Cabins for Improved Passenger Comfort

The company aims to improve and standardize its products and services on its short and medium-haul routes.

New, more comfortable, and innovative seats

The new Embraer 190 cabins will have 110 comfortable leather seats in a 2-2 layout. Each seat can recline and has a tray table, an adjustable headrest, and good storage space.

Business customers will sit at the front, where a mobile curtain will offer added comfort and privacy. Starting in January 2025, each Business customer will enjoy the luxury of an empty seat next to them.

A bright, elegant cabin

The Embraer 190 cabin features Air France’s blue and white colors with red accents. The seats showcase grey embroidery and symmetrical stitching. The airline’s trademark design appears on the headrest and rear cabin walls, while the carpet displays a herringbone pattern inspired by Parisian apartments.

Lighter seats, designed and manufactured in France

Air France teamed up with Expliseat and designer Andrea Mocellin to design the seats.

The seat structure is made of carbon fiber and titanium, making it light and strong. The design incorporates recycled parts and uses little plastic.

Each new seat weighs 30% less, which helps decrease the plane’s weight, fuel use, and CO2 emissions. This change is part of the airline’s plan to lower carbon emissions by updating the fleet, using sustainable aviation fuel, and promoting eco-friendly piloting.

Manufacturers will make the custom seats in Angers and the HOP! maintenance team in Clermont-Ferrand will update the Embraer 190s after the summer.
