The designers have done a
lot to make the passengers comfortable. The layout of passenger
compartments is carefully thought out. The main tourist
modification carries 152 passengers. There are two salons for 54
and 98 passengers. Provisions have been made for dividing the
front cabin by an easily removable partition into a first class
salon for 12 passengers and two tourist class salons for 19 and
98 passengers. It takes little time to rearrange the salons.
The advanced air conditioning system creates a pleasant
microclimate in flight. At any altitude and in any season a
temperature of 20 degrees Centigrade above zero, moderate
humidity and pure air are maintained in the salon. At all
altitudes automatic devices guarantee normal pressure in
pressurized compartments and rule out unpleasant sensations when
the plane descends.
Comfortable seats, uniform soft lighting, well contrived
passenger and auxiliary compartments and the low level of noise
contribute to the passengers’ pleasant recreation.
