The premium economy cabin offers 56 seats in a 2-4-2 cabin layout. These wide, cream leather seats offer extra comfort to passengers with 6-way adjustable headrests, calf rests and footrests, so you can sit back and relax. Screens are 13.3 inches and there will be easily-accessible charging points, a wide dining table and even a cocktail table.

A premium experience

Not only can passengers enjoy extra comfort, customers can look forward to a dedicated check-in area for Premium Economy at Dubai International airport, or utilise the self-service check in kiosks in the hall to avoid queues. Premium Economy passengers will also enjoy a welcome drink in fine glassware, and a Business Class-style meal service with chinaware and stainless steel cutlery wrapped in linen napkin.

Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: “As with everything we do, Emirates Premium Economy will be exceptional in its class, with minute attention given to every aspect of the customer experience. Customers trading up from Economy will be getting excellent value.”

Due to the positive feedback since launching in January 2021, Emirates revealed the it will continue to expand its fleet of Premium Economy. “We currently have six A380s equipped with this cabin class, which limits our initial deployment, but our intention is to offer this experience to many more markets across our network,” Clark continued.
