Emirates President Sir Tim Clark has revealed the Gulf airline will introduce a Premium Economy cabin on new Airbus A380s from January 2020.
The cabin will be fitted on some of the new double-decker aircraft it ordered from Airbus earlier this year.
“We have already ‘spec’d out’ the airplanes; we know exactly what we’re going to do, [and] where we’re going to place these seats, which zones and how we’re designing the product,” Clark explained to Steve Harvey, host of Emirates World interviews.
“We’ve just got to make absolutely sure that the maths stack up,” Clark remarked.
“The airplanes that we ordered, the latest A380s – the first six of which come in 2020 – we will be installing Premium Economy in those, and it will be an Emirates premium economy, so it will be special,” Arabian Business quoted Clark saying this week.
