Emirates’ Premium Economy extends to new destinations

New cabin class will be available on routes to São Paolo in Brazil and Tokyo Narita in Japan

Emirates has announced that its Premium Economy offering will be introduced to two more points in its network, Brazil's São Paolo from 19 November and Tokyo Narita from 20 December 2023. 

As the airline’s retrofit programme picks up pace and the product extends to more routes on its network, Dubai-São Paolo will become the 13th route to offer Emirates' latest cabin product, which features extra legroom and amenities, and Dubai-Tokyo Narita will be the 14th.

Besides featuring the new Premium Economy seats, Emirates' enhanced A380 aircraft will feature refreshed interiors that provide an elevated experience throughout the other cabins, with a new look and feel.

The four-class aircraft have 56 seats in Premium Economy, located at the front of the main deck, laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration, in addition to 338 seats in Economy Class, 76 in Business Class and 14 First Class suites.

The Premium Economy offering has proven to be popular on the 10 routes where the product has already been launched. Since Premium Economy was introduced a year ago, more than 160,000 customers have traded up from Economy Class.


Emirates currently flies its A380s with Premium Economy seats to global destinations including London Heathrow, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Christchurch, Singapore, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Houston and San Francisco. 

Ahead of the São Paolo and Tokyo Narita Premium Economy launches, the seat class will debut on Emirates’ flights to Mumbai and Bengaluru in India from 29 October 2023.

Seats can be booked online and via Emirates sales offices and travel agencies.
