The all-new Jet Airways Boeing 737-800 aircraft feature new Sky Interiors, complete with cove lighting and a curved cabin architecture that provides a feeling of openness and space.
The bright color and décor of the aircraft with modern, sculpted sidewalls and larger windows, combined with the effect of the light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, significantly enhances the sense of spaciousness in the cabin. The dynamic and brighter LED lighting can also portray different color schemes, such as a soft blue sky or a relaxing pallet of sunset colors.
Another new feature of the aircraft is the new pivot bin, which affords greater overhead bin capacity for storage. The new Boeing 737 – 800 aircraft also possesses superior in-flight sound quality and clarity with the use of new speakers that have been improved in each passenger row.
Jet Airways took delivery of the first of these 11 new next-generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft this month, which will initially operate roundtrip on the airline’s Delhi-Doha route, with the balance of the planes to be delivered through March 2013.
Commenting on the acquisition of the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, Sudheer Raghavan, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, said: “At Jet Airways, we have continually and consciously innovated with our products and services to deliver a significantly enhanced guest experience with unmatched comfort. The induction of the Boeing 737-800 with Sky Interiors is another step at attempting to set an industry benchmark.”
