Last week, Emirates Airlines received its ordered A380 airplane, which incorporates a brand new Premium Economy cabin product and more advancements across all cabins onboard.

The Premium Economy represents two passenger lavatories located at the front of the main deck.


Sir Tim Clark, President at Emirates Airline, said: “The Emirates A380 is already one of the most sought-after travel experiences in the skies, and now we’ve made it even better. While others cut back, Emirates is working hard to restore the products and services that we’ve had to suspend or adjust due to pandemic precautions and introduce new offerings and enhancements. True to our fly better promise, Emirates continues to invest to offer our customers the best possible experience.”


Each Premium Economy seat is 19.5 inches wide and leans 8 inches back, allowing passengers to take a rest position.

The cream-colored leather seats with quality stitching and a wood panel resemble that of the Business Class setting. Adjustable headrests, calf rests, and footrests provide maximum comfort for traveling. Anything passengers may need is within their hand’s reach: 13.3” screens for watching TV and listening to music, charging points, dining and cocktail tables.


Emirates will also install Premium Economy seats on some of their Boeing 777X aircraft, arriving in 2023.
