Air NZ updates Skycouch

Air NZ updates Skycouch

Air New Zealand is making some enhancements to its Economy Skycouch, benefiting the airline’s youngest customers.

The airline is introducing a dedicated infant harness and belt, allowing infants to remain lying down throughout the cruise phase of flight.

Previously they were required to be seated on a guardian’s lap when the seatbelt sign was on.

A new infant pod provides additional comfort and protection for the airline’s youngest Skycouch customers.

Pending certification and regulatory approvals, the airline plans to make the modified Skycouch product available progressively onboard its Boeing 777 and 787-9 Dreamliner fleets in the coming months.
