SWISS has revealed the cabin layout for its upcoming Airbus A350-900s.
SWISS has determined how large each seating cabin will be, along with their seat configurations, aisles, toilets and galleys, and has also finalized how many seats will be available in each class of travel. The new Airbus A350- 900s will also feature the new ‘SWISS Senses’ cabin concept, which will offer “SWISS customers a totally new and more personalized air travel experience”.
The SWISS A350-900s will feature a total of 242 seats: three in First Class, 45 in Business Class, 38 in Premium Economy Class and 156 in Economy Class.
At 38 seats, the Airbus A350-900’s Premium Economy Class will be substantially larger than those on SWISS’s existing long-haul aircraft. The Zurich-based airline says that by expanding the number of Premium Economy seats, it is responding to the growing demand for air travel in the premium segment, particularly among leisure travellers.

Through their carefully-conceived spatial design, all our seating classes aboard our aircraft will offer our guests a totally new and unparallelled air travel experience from 2025 onwards. With our new cabin concept, we will still remain the only major airline in the world to offer a First Class cabin on all its long-haul aircraft. We will also be increasing the size of our Premium Economy Class, which has proved very popular. And in both these respects, we are further clearly positioning SWISS as Europe’s leading premium airline.said Tamur Goudarzi Pour, Chief Commercial Officer, SWISS.
Since it will be receiving its new Airbus A350-900s directly from the factory, SWISS says that it has been able to specify their interiors in accordance with its own particular needs.
SWISS will take delivery of 5 A350-900s from 2025 onwards. In the longer term, the new long-haul twinjets will replace the company’s four remaining four-engined Airbus A340-300s.
