Dubai carrier Emirates has unveiled its full premium economy offering and will open the cabin for sale from June 1, 2022, it announced at this year’s Arabian Travel Market.

On a four-class Emirates A380, the premium economy cabin is located at the front of the main deck with 56 seats laid out in 2-4-2 configuration. Meanwhile, up to 24 premium economy seats will be installed in a dedicated cabin section between business and economy on the Emirates Boeing 777.

The new cabin class, which offers luxurious seats and more legroom, will be available to Emirates customers travelling on A380 routes to London, Paris, Sydney from August 1, and Christchurch from December.

Customers can also access a dedicated check-in area for premium economy at Dubai International airport, or utilise one of the self-service check in kiosks in the hall to avoid queues.

Onboard, the leather seats offer a pitch of up to 40 inches, is 19.5 inches wide, and reclines eight inches. It also offers calf rests and footrests as well as in-seat charging points and a side cocktail table.

Customers can use soft, sustainable blankets made from recycled plastic bottles. They can also refresh themselves with the complimentary amenity kits which come in reusable, sustainable bags. Passengers will receive a welcome drink onboard and during meal service, meals will be served on chinaware, accompanied by stainless steel cutlery.

Each seat has a 13.3″ screen for passengers to enjoy upto 5,000 channels of music, movies, TV, news and other content.

Sir Tim Clark, president Emirates Airline said: “Since we first introduced our Premium Economy seats in January 2021, the positive response and demand has been tremendous. 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.

“This November, we will begin our retrofit programme to install premium economy on 67 A380s and 53 Boeing 777s. At the end of the programme, Emirates will have 126 aircraft fitted out with premium economy cabins, as well as our latest interiors across other cabins. It is a major investment to ensure our customers continue to have the best experience in the sky.”

Last month,  Emirates launched Dubai Experience, a platform for customers to browse, create and book customised itineraries including flights, hotel stay, visits to key attractions, and other dining and leisure experiences in Dubai and the UAE.
