Emirates’ Premium Economy class landing in Sydney

The highly sought after cabin class features plush seats with more legroom, and an in-flight service to rival many airlines' business offering.

Emirates has unveiled its Premium Economy offering onboard and on ground, which will be available on select flights, including Sydney and Christchurch.

The highly sought after cabin class features plush seats with more legroom, and an in-flight service to rival many airlines’ business offering, promising customers trading up from Economy “excellent value.”

It will be available for booking from 1 June, on A380 routes to Sydney, London and Paris from 1 August, and Christchurch from December.

“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,” Emirates Airline president Sir Tim Clark said.

“Since we first introduced our Premium Economy seats in January 2021, the positive response and demand has been tremendous.”

Travellers flying Premium Economy get a dedicated check-in area at Dubai International Airport before being greeted on-board with a welcome drink.

On-board, they can look forward to luxurious, comfy leather seats complete with six-way adjustable headrests, calf rests and footrests, and a recline of eight inches into a cradle position with ample room to stretch out. There are easily accessible in-seat charging ports and a side cocktail table, plus each seat has a 13.3-inch screen from which to enjoy Emirates’ award-winning ‘ICE’ inflight entertainment of up to 5,000 channels.

Guests will also receive complimentary amenity kits, soft blankets and pillows, and enjoy generous meals made from fine, seasonal ingredients accompanied by a beverage menu of premium wines and after-meal liqueurs.

The airline currently as six A380s equipped with this class and intends to roll out the offering to many more markets across its network.

“It is a major investment to ensure our customers continue to have the best experience in the sky.”
