Over the next year, Air India plans to expand this three-class configuration across its entire narrowbody fleet. Existing aircraft are being progressively refitted, while new aircraft will be delivered with the updated interiors.

Campbell Wilson, CEO & Managing Director of Air India, stated, “The introduction of a three-class cabin to Air India’s narrowbody fleet and the commencement of interior refits are crucial steps in enhancing the flying experience. The upgrade of the narrowbody fleet, which operates on domestic and short-haul international networks, complements the upgraded widebody experience now available on our A350 fleet and new B777s, and on all other widebodies as they are refitted over the next two years. This comprehensive upgrade of Air India’s physical product is a vital component of transforming into a world-class airline.”

The seats in all three cabins, designed by Collins Aerospace, combine unique ergonomic contouring and a patented comfort system to enhance passenger comfort. They come equipped with literature pockets, charging ports, tray tables, and coat hooks. The airline's A320neo aircraft feature innovative mood lighting with specific illumination settings for take-off, landing, meal service, and even to celebrate India’s national days. This lighting is designed to enhance the overall in-flight experience, creating a relaxing environment.
