By December 2017, all our B767 fleet will be fitted with flat-bed seats in Cloud Nine with access to a range of video programming available for wireless streaming in all cabins.”

The airline currently has 92 aircraft with an average age of five years and has plans to acquire 19 A350-900s, four B787-900s and five Q400s in future.
