Caon Studio was commissioned by Qantas to redesign the cabin of the Qantaslink B717 Jet. The result was a sleek interior, with bespoke engineering features. The team considered every element of the jet interior, including custom seats, iPad holders, and fabrics.
The design pays homage to luxury performance vehicles, utilising dark, textural materials to create a sophisticated palette. Whilst details have been included to reinforce the Qantas brand identity, new bespoke patterns also give this interior its own personality.
“You will be able to enjoy sleek interiors with class-leading seats in Business, as well as iPad tablet entertainment for every passenger and a premium food and beverage offering.” Qantas
The upgraded 110-seat jet, with a completely new interior, is to be used on selected Canberra-Brisbane, Canberra-Melbourne and Canberra-Sydney flights, which will provide QantasLink customers with an enhanced jet experience.
All customers will have individual iPad technology for their in-flight entertainment. All Business customers will have iPad’s while Economy customers will have iPad minis.

QantasLink Executive Manager John Gissing said customers travelling on the the upgraded Boeing 717 jet will be offered an exceptional on-board experience.
“The brand new look and feel of the interior of the aircraft is market-leading and is already proving very popular, particularly our corporate and government customers.”
“The new luxury leather seats in Business class are wider, with better recline and bigger pitch, making the experience more comfortable and enjoyable. The Economy cabin has been fitted with new high-comfort quilted seats with more generous cushioning.”
