Emirates will introduce an additional Premium Economy service between Melbourne and Dubai, available from 1 February 2024.
The additional service follows the launch of the airline’s Premium Economy service from Melbourne in April 2023, when the new cabin was made available on other services on the same route. This latest development means Emirates now offers close to 800 weekly Premium Economy seats between Melbourne and its Dubai hub.
The Premium Economy cabin offers plush cream leather seats and a wood veneer, more baggage and a better menu than standard economy, staffed by flight attendants dedicated to that class.
Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President Australasia at Emirates, said: “With the extraordinary success of the Premium Economy cabin so far in Australia, the additional Premium Economy service in Melbourne will give more customers the opportunity to experience our unique premium products.”
The introduction of the additional Premium Economy service to Melbourne is part of Emirates’ multi-million dollar retrofit programme, where a total of 126 aircraft, including 67 A380s and 53 Boeing 777s, will be fitted out with Premium Economy cabins. Currently, 22 A380s flying across the network have been fitted with our Premium Economy cabin.
