Emirates has announced that it will soon offer Premium Economy Class on São Paulo and Tokyo Narita flights.
Starting 19th November 2023, Emirates will initially offer Premium Economy Class on three-flights-a-week out of 7-weekly A380 service to São Paulo (it will be available on every flight starting in December 2023) while the same will be available on flights to Tokyo Narita as of 20th December 2023.
São Paulo will become the airline’s fifth point in its North and South American network where flights will operate with the new cabin class, while Tokyo Narita will become the second gateway in Emirates’ Far East network which offers its latest cabin product.
As the airline’s retrofit programme picks up pace and the product extends to more routes on its network, São Paulo will become the 13th city where Emirates will operate its newly retrofitted flagship A380 aircraft, while the number of points offering Premium Economy will grow to 14 with the addition of Tokyo Narita. Besides featuring the new Premium Economy seats, the enhanced aircraft that will operate on the routes also boast refreshed interiors that provide an elevated experience throughout the other cabins, with a new look and feel.
