Emirates airline to launch premium economy in 2020

Speaking on the airline’s podcast series Emirates World, Emirates airline chairman, Tim Clark, has confirmed that premium economy will be fitted on the A380s it ordered in January 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 (destinations)and how we’re designing the product,” Clark said. “We’ve just got to make absolutely sure that the maths stack up.”

Clark added that the Emirates premium economy would be “special” and also stressed that demand for First Class, “remains strong in the Middle East and will continue into the future”.
