Dubai-based airline Emirates has opened bookings for its new premium economy class from June 1.

The new cabin class will be available to customers travelling on A380 routes to London, Paris and Sydney from August 1, for which the carrier has currently commenced bookings.

Meanwhile, the premium economy option will also be made available to Emirates A380 customers flying to Christchurch from December.

The premium economy cabin offers 56 seats in a 2-4-2 cabin layout. The leather seats offer extra comfort to passengers with 6-way adjustable headrests, calf rests and footrests.

Each seat has a 13.3″ screen for passengers to enjoy upto 5,000 channels of music, movies, TV, news and other content. There will be easily-accessible charging points, a wide dining table and a cocktail table.

Customers can use a dedicated check-in area for Premium Economy at Dubai International airport, or utilise the self-service check in kiosks to avoid queues. Passengers will also receive 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.”

Emirates has said that 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 added.

Emirates revealed at the recently held Arabian Travel Market that the premium economy option will be available to book to four destinations this year.
