Travellers flying to and from Singapore on Emirates can look forward to the newly retrofitted A380s, featuring its latest Premium Economy cabins, from March 1 next year.
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 a two-four-two configuration and offers spacious seating, in-seat charging points and a side table. It also includes curated in-flight amenities, menu, and beverage options.
Rashid Al Ardha, country manager, Singapore & Brunei, Emirates, said: “The premium travel experience that these cabins offer have received a hugely positive response since they were introduced in other markets. Customers loved the quality and comfort and the thoughtful touches we have made to enhance their in-flight experience.
“We are committed to offering our passengers the distinct Emirates experience whenever they fly with us, and will continue innovating to provide customer-centric, future-forward inflight experiences.”
Besides Singapore, Emirates will also be introducing Premium Economy from December to New York JFK, San Francisco, Melbourne, and Auckland.
Sydney will become the first city in the Emirates network to offer Premium Economy seats on all flights from December 15, and London Heathrow will receive its third daily service with Premium Economy from January 1, 2023.
Emirates will ramp up A380 services to 42 destinations by the end of March 2023.
Starting from November, the airline will begin upgrading and retrofitting works for the interior cabins of 67 Airbus A380 and 53 Boeing 777 aircraft – by 2025, nearly 4,000 new Premium Economy seats will be installed, 728 First Class suites refurbished and over 5,000 Business Class seats upgraded to a new style and design
