China Airlines A321 neo cabins

China Airlines has received delivery of its first A321neo passenger aircraft, which will become the carrier’s mainstay on regional routes.

The A321neo with its spacious, comfortable cabin interior, emphasises contactless service and enhanced epidemic prevention measures. Upgrades include premium business class with fully flat seats, the latest in-flight entertainment system, as well as the largest displays, high-speed Wi-Fi connection, and free text messaging.

China Airlines’ A321neo is configured with 180 seats including 12 in premium business class and 168 in economy class. The cabin configuration itself has been fine-tuned to meet passenger requirements and support contactless service for epidemic prevention in the post-COVID-19 era. Fully flat premium business class seats developed for widebody passenger aircraft have also been introduced on a narrow body passenger aircraft for the first time. Each seat is now wider and equipped with adjustable extra-height partitions for privacy and reduced contact with neighbouring seats.

In a first for the domestic airline industry, smart link support has been introduced by China Airlines. All passengers can now connect to the in-flight entertainment system via their personal mobile phone and Bluetooth headphones. The lavatory include contactless, sensor-activated taps to reduce the risk of cross-infection. The added HEPA high-efficiency air filtration system also replaces the air inside the cabin every two to three minutes to ensure a clean and safe trip.

The China Airlines A321neo is equipped with the industry’s latest in-flight entertainment system that provides every passenger with personalised multimedia content in their seats. The 15.6-inch and 13.3-inch 4K high-resolution, extra-large displays in premium business and economy class include picture-in-picture multi-processing functionality while allowing passengers to access the flight map, catering and other services at the same time.

High-speed in-flight Wi-Fi service is also provided onboard the aircraft. Free text messaging is available for seven apps including Line, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, Apple iMessage, WhatsApp, Viber and Line2 for staying connected.

Passengers can pay via credit card or redeem in full with their membership miles to stream multimedia, web browsing or catch up on their favourite shows via their personal mobile devices while in-flight.
