Emirates airline to finally introduce premium economy

585

 

President of Emirates Tim Clark, confirmed that his airline will introduce premium economy before the end of the year.

Clark said that the airline would receive three new superjumbos by the end of the year. He said at least one of these would have a Premium Economy cabin.

The new cabin is set to give travellers ‘sleeperette’ seats and other perks for fares that are higher than economy tickets, but well below business class airfares.

Typically, Premium Economy tickets offer travellers more legroom and enhanced food and beverage services. Fares are usually higher than regular economy tickets, but cheaper than business and first class tickets.

With the first Premium Economy cabin being delivered on an Emirates A380 jet, it’s likely that the first tickets will be available to book on one of the six routes that the airline is operating via Dubai -London, China, Washington, DC, Russia, Egypt and France.
