Emirates airlines issues major announcement for passengers

Since Emirates Airlines first introduced its premium economy seats in January 2021, the positive response and demand have been impressive.

Today, Emirates expanded the premium economy option, offering seats onboard and on-ground, from June 1, on flights starting from August 1.

Emirates intends to extend the offering to several other markets, with 67 A380s and 53 Boeing 777s up for a retrofit this November. 

The new cabin class, which offers luxurious seats, more legroom, and service to rival many airlines’ business offerings, will be available to Emirates customers traveling on popular A380 routes to London, Paris, Sydney from August 1, and Christchurch from December, revealed Emirates at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) which opened today in Dubai.

The new offering is less expensive than business class but costlier than economy class. 

Emirates will have 126 aircraft fitted out with premium economy cabins.
