Emirates’ Premium Economy class offers travellers a luxurious experience featuring spacious seats, increased legroom, and an elevated dining experience. Besides this, the airline has also refurbished the interiors of its A380 aircraft such that passengers in all cabins can now enjoy the refreshed design featuring Emirates’ signature ghaf tree motif.

The enhancements throughout the aircraft, from the carpeting to the wall panels and wood finishings, provide a beautiful and modern aesthetic. Passengers flying on the Dubai-Mumbai route can reserve their Premium Economy seats on flights EK500/501, while those travelling between Dubai and Bengaluru can book seats on flights EK568/569. Bookings can be made immediately through emirates.com, sales offices, and travel agencies for travel commencing on October 29.

Emirates’ A380 aircraft are renowned for their spacious and comfortable cabins, quiet ambience, and unique features such as the Onboard Lounge and First Class Shower Spa. Passengers can also indulge in the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system, ice, which offers over 5,000 channels of on-demand entertainment on industry-leading screens across all cabins.

Expanding Emirates’ Premium Economy Offering

As the airline continues to retrofit its A380s with a four-class configuration, Premium Economy will be introduced on flights to more destinations worldwide. This service is currently available on flights to nine destinations, including New York JFK, San Francisco, Houston, London Heathrow, Sydney, Auckland, Christchurch, Melbourne, and Singapore.

The airline will debut Premium Economy cabins on flights to Los Angeles in July, bringing the total number of routes offering this service to 12 by the end of 2023.
