Air New Zealand licenses Skycouch to China Airlines

Media release
7 January 2014

Air New Zealand has signed a licensing agreement with China Airlines for its Economy Skycouch seat.

Under the terms of the agreement, China Airlines will commence the introduction of the Skycouch to its fleet of new 777-300ERs from September this year.

The locally designed Skycouch is a row of three economy seats that together adapt to create a flat flexible space to stretch out and relax in. It was developed as part of a three year innovation process to re-invent the long haul flying experience.

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon says the Skycouch has been revolutionary for the airline.

“The Skycouch has transformed the Economy flying experience and has been really well received by our customers since it was first introduced in 2011. We have seen strong interest from other airlines in the product and are exploring licensing agreements with other carriers on non-competing routes,” says Mr Luxon.

This is the first licensing agreement for the Skycouch following the expiry of the exclusivity period the airline adopted at the launch of the product in 2011. The deal was originally announced in November but confidentiality terms in the agreement have prevented Air New Zealand naming the carrier until now.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
