Flat beds are to be introduced to bmi's business class options in what the airline describes as a "significant enhancement" of its long-haul product offering.

The option of leather seats that convert into beds will be available to passengers on the carrier's Airbus A330 planes.

Business passengers are expected to benefit most from the change, as the flat beds offer telephones, laptop power points and dataports.

The airline also offers food, which it claims is restaurant quality, prepared by an onboard chef.

Lisa Meredith, marketing manager of consumer leisure for bmi, said: "As a business purpose airline, we are confident that the introduction of flat beds in the business cabin will prove popular with our customers.

"The combination of the new beds and the onboard chef positions bmi as a market leading airline offering an unrivalled business cabin product."

Bmi's long-haul network from Manchester airport includes flights to Chicago, Las Vegas, Barbados and Antigua.
